Commander-in-chief of the Royal Thai Army confirmed that investigators may have found at least one suspect involved in the Phra Mongkhutklao Hospital bombing from CCTV footages.

The army chief Gen Chalermchai Sithisart said an inspection of CCTV footages at the Phra Mongkutklao Hospital produced one suspect.

He stated that the images showed a suspicious individual who was seen entering and leaving the hospital on a number of occasions.

As such he believed that authorities were close to apprehending at least one suspect.

He also stated that the Royal Thai Army's security units were on standby and were ready to provide support to the police if and when the order comes.

Investigators believe that the bombing had been aided by an inside man at the hospital who had connections to the political anarchists who had incited the bombings in Bangkok.

They also believed that this person may have been taken into custody in the past but were not certain if he was directly connected to the notorious hardcore redshirt activist leader Wuthiphong Katchathammakun otherwise known as Koh Tee.

Koh Tee is at present being hunted by Laotian authorities at the behest of the Thai government. He fled the country after the military take-over. He also faced less majeste charge.
