    MKO's involvement in Bangkok blasts remains to be determined          
    BANGKOK, 22 February 2012 (NNT) – The Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Defense stated that the alleged involvement of the People's Mujaheedin of Iran or MKO is still unclear and that further investigations will reveal the facts surrounding the issue.
    Speaking of Iran’s accusation that the terrorist organization was behind the blasts in Bangkok on February 14, Deputy Prime Minister General Yuthasak Sasiprapa stated that he has yet to receive a report relating to the issue. At the same time, there is still no concrete evidence which points to the MKO's involvement.
    Meanwhile, ACM Sukumpol Suwanatat stated that the accusation might be part of a political retaliation between the two parties in conflict. He added that further investigations will be carried out in order to determine whether the accusation is justified or not, while commenting that the explosions did not seem like a work of a professional.
    The Defense Minister added that the extradition process of the bomb suspect, who was apprehended while trying to flee to Iran via Malaysia, is expected to be finalized next week.
