An independent-inquiry committee into violence and death during anti-government rallies on Monday met with a detained-anti-government core leader, the Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.

Khanit na Nakhon, chairman of the inquiry panel visited the Naresuan Boarder Patrol Police camp in central Petchburi province, in which Veera Musikhapong, chairman of the anti-government United Front for Democracy (UDD) group, has been detained on charges of violating the emergency decree.

Veera said the "Red-shirt" leaders do not have doubts over Khanit's qualifications as they have known and respected him.

Earlier, the Bangkok Post's website quoted Khanit as saying "I want to meet with Mr. Veera and other UDD co-leaders to seek opinion on ways to settle the current political crisis. To bring about peace and order to the country, I have to listen to suggestions and recommendations from all parties."

The death toll from a series of violent clashes between the " Red-shirt" protesters and troops during March 12 to May 19 stood at 88 as some 1,885 others were wounded.
