BANGKOK: Lawyer for Bangkok bomb accused says client confessed

BANGKOK (AFP) – The foreigner accused of planting a bomb at a Bangkok shrine has admitted involvement in the deadly attack, his lawyer said Wednesday, reversing earlier denials of a confession.

The comments by lawyer Schoochart Kanpai confirmed the Thai authorities’ version of the complex investigation into the August 17 blast which killed 20 people.

Earlier this week Schoochart had questioned whether the man — whom police have named both as Bilal Mohammed and as Adem Karadag — had confessed.

The lawyer said his client had previously insisted he was not in the country on the day of the attack.

But after meeting his client on Wednesday, Schoochart reversed his position.
