The DSI is now handling a total of 155 cases, including 75 involving terrorism, 18 threats and intimidation against the government, 50 harmful acts against people and state officials, and 12 weapons offenses. In these cases, 86 suspects have surrendered, 29 have fled and one died.

There are nine arson cases in five provinces involving 396 suspects, of whom 100 have been arrested and 296 are still on the run.

Col Fuangwich Anirutthewa, secretary to the justice minister, said there are now 113 suspects, including UDD leaders, being detained in prisons on charges of violating the emergency decree. Of these, 67 are being detained at the Bangkok Remand Prison, 37 at the Klong Prem Prison, and nine at the central prison for female suspects.

Justice Minister Pirapan Salirathavibhaga has set up a special unit to track down suspects on terrorism charges who are still on the run, Col Fuangwich said.

Pasit Assavawattanaporn, deputy director-general of the Justice Ministry's Department of Rights and Liberties Protection, said 53 people who claimed to have been affected by the emergency situation have petitioned for compensation for damage and eight were paid.

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