Thailand's national army chief General Anupong Paojinda, the chief of operations of the Center for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES), on Monday signed an order to require 83 suspects of funding criminal activities during the recent anti-government protests to be interrogated, Department of Special Investigation (DSI) chief Tharit Pengdit said, the Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.

The DSI will immediately issue summonses for the 83 suspects after the army chief signed the order, Tharit said earlier on Monday.

The interrogation of the 83 individuals and companies suspected of funding criminal activities will start from June 28 to July 31, said Tharit.

Totally, the DSI is expected to take 60 days to complete the questioning procedure and the outcome of the examination will be forwarded to the CRES and cabinet, he said.

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