A probe into Japanese photographer Hiroyuki Muramoto’s death will be completed by next week, the Metropolitan Police Bureau team re-investigating the killings in last year’s political mayhem said yesterday. (Bangkok)

The team was speeding up its inquiry into the death, the third of 16 such cases, and will give its report to the Department of Special Investigation soon, said deputy Metropolitan Police Bureau commissioner Anuchai Lekbamrung, the chief investigator.

The DSI has stipulated the 16 deaths were caused by state officials. Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung had previously ordered the Metropolitan Police Bureau to take over the investigation into the deaths from the Department of the Special Investigation.

Muramoto, who worked for Reuters, was killed while covering the April 10 clashes between security forces and red shirts at the Kok Wua intersection in Bangkok. On Tuesday, the police team completed a second investigation into the death of Mana Atran, who was gunned down at Dusit Zoo on April 10, Pol Maj Gen Anuchai said.
