‘Men in black’ are policemen, Chalerm claims (Bangkok)

The armed “men in black”, much mentioned during last year’s political violence, are in the media limelight again after Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung yesterday claimed those men donned police uniforms during the day.

“I would like to reiterate here that they are policemen,” Chalerm said.

He went on to say that a group of policemen from the Northeast carried out the assassination of Army specialist Maj-General Khattiya Sawasdiphol.
