Foreigner charged over bomb-making materials

February 23, 2012

A suspect in a bomb-related case, Lebanese-Swede Artris Hussein, was yesterday indicted officially for illegally possessing substances that could be used to make explosives.

The 3,412-page investigation report and indictment, filed in 18 sections, has been handed to a senior public prosecutor, Phongniwat Yutthaphan-borikarn, who said he would complete an indictment and forward it to the court by March 2 – before a fourth 12-day detention period ended.

He would not require an extension.

The indictment said the suspect had 11 gallons of liquid ammonium nitrate, capable of being made into bombs, along with 335 boxes containing an explosives-equivalent substance kept in plastic bags in his possession, without permission.

Hussein has denied the charge.

Police cited Hussein’s status as a member of Hezbollah, which was described as a terrorist organisation in their indictment.

However, they have decided to file against him only the charge of possessing explosives-equivalent substances.
