Crime suppression police arrested a female suspect in a bombing case seconds after she was released on bail, charging her with lese majeste.

Nattatida Meewangpla, 39, was arrested in front of the Central Women Correctional Institution on Ngam Wong Wan Road in Chatuchak district just after being released on bail in a case in which she was allegedly involved in a grenade attack at the Criminal Court on Ratchadaphisek Road on March 7, 2015.

She was also a key witness in the shootings at Wat Pathum Wanaram on May 19, 2010, which claimed six lives. At that time she was a volunteer nurse from Vajira Hospital, working near people killed during a crackdown on red-shirt demonstrators in Bangkok.
