Stickers at 'bomb house' also found on route to hotel
BANGKOK: -- Stickers suspected to be part of an alleged terror plot by a group of Iranian nationals, with the word "SEJEAL" written on them, have been found pasted along a route running close to a leading Bangkok hotel, a police source said yesterday.
Police have not yet worked |out what "SEJEAL" means, but believe it could be a code used by the terror suspects.
A supply of the stickers was earlier found in a room in the house rented by Leila Rohani, a female suspect in the plot who has already returned to Iran, as well as also on a motorcycle purchased by other suspects, which was abandoned at the scene of two grenade attacks last week, near Soi Pridi Banomyong 31 in Bangkok.
The stickers, 40 of which were pasted at 27 locations on power poles, traffic signs and telephone booths, were yesterday found along a road running parallel to the Ploenchit-bound expressway section and leading to the JW Marriot Hotel, off Sukhumvit Soi 2. There were no details about how the hotel would link to the travel routes used frequently by Israeli diplomats, the likely targets of the prospective attacks in the view of local and international media, or how it might serve as a gathering place.
Meanwhile, police yesterday took Mohammad Khazaei, 42, who was arrested at Suvarnabhu-mi Airport on the day of the explosions on February 14, to re-enact his alleged crimes. They formally charged him with making bombs, possessing explosives without permission and causing explosions leading to injuries.
Assistant police chief Pol General Jaramphorn Suramanee said DNA tests showed that Khazaei's DNA matched that found on clothing and a pair of shoes left in the rented house.
At a press conference, deputy police chief Pol General Pansiri Praphawat avoided questions from foreign media focusing on links between the alleged terror plot in Thailand and transnational terrorism. He answered questions relating mainly to police work, before cutting short the session.
Police have obtained an arrest warrant for a fifth suspect, an alleged bomb-maker identified as Norouzi Shaya Ali Akbar, 57, who entered Thailand on February 2 and left the country at 8.50am on the day of the blasts, which took place at 1pm.
Pansiri said police would seek Iran's cooperation to send Ali Akbar, initially charged with possessing explosives without permission and causing explosions, back to Thailand.
Defence intelligence sources had earlier identified this fifth suspect as Nikkhahfard Javad.
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, during an official one-day visit to Malaysia yesterday, said discussion over the possible handover to Thai police of Masoud Seda Ghatzadeh, another suspect now in Malaysian police custody, was not on the agenda, but could be brought up unofficially with Malaysian authorities and her counterpart, Prime Minister Najib Razak.
Defence Minister Sukumpol Suwanathat said Thailand's open tourism policy had made prevention of crime and terrorism difficult, but the now-intense security measures could ensure safety at some level. Bangkok-based police have been instructed to keep a close watch on tourist residences and attractions with foreign occupants and visitors in order to monitor the situation and minimise risks, but to do this in a discreet manner to prevent panic or spoil the atmosphere for tourism.

the sticker promotes the name of the shisha shop, which was meant to be opened from the assets which suppose to be put into buying quality materials to make bombs

Isn't it strange that the printing on those sejeal stickers is in the same green color as the other bigger sticker on top of the pole and that they seem to be placed orderly?
My guess is that the sticker belongs to the company who installed the poles.You know in Thailand left hand doesn't know what right hand does.

Perhaps the BiBs might add littering, to any other "minor symbolic acts" (copyright Deputy-PM Chalerm), which these terrorists might be charged-with ?

The Koran that tells of a miracle when birds from heaven dropped "sejeal stones" on an army riding elephants from Yemen who were attempting to kill Mohammed, scaring the animals and saving the prophet's life.
Just another fairy tale.

Green is the traditional colour of Islam. The paradise where the suicide bombers are supposed to go is referred to asاخضر "green".

By coincidence, the Italian news agency reports that missiles were fired from Gaza including a heavy Grad last Friday..
Other newswires have reported "50 missiles were launched from Gaza at Israel towns. These missiles are often referred to as “Sejeal Stones” by ‘Palestinians’ depicting the story of Yemeni attackers upon Muhammad being repelled by scaring their elephants with stones"
Mr. Blows, you certainly have your eye on the news .

Where are those politicians, bureaucrats, and tourism officials who fervently denied that these bombings and bomb making activities had anything to with Tourism. Why would the Iranian terrorist cooperate with a "Thai reenactment" without the benefit of an attorney at his side or why do it at all?
Posted 2012-02-21 09:16:22
One trusts that the BiBs will now rush, to swiftly remove the unexploded-stickers, or are they merely "minor symbolic acts" ?
... erm ... actually, on second thoughts, they are ... aren't they ?
"Make Stickers, Not War, Man !"

i have two thoughts, maybe Arabic for Teerak, or look up here for legs.
Posted 2012-02-21 09:44:42
Two odd things:
-the stickers are in Roman alphabet, rather than Farsi or Arabic
-why give the suspect body armour?

It is amazing how co-operative a man will become to get the electrical leads disconnected from his testicles.

If they see this as a possible lead, why don't they keep mum about it?

Could be a huge tourist bonanza for Thailand as tourist come to see the jehadi terrorist re-enact this crime against humanity.

Progress Made for the Investigation of Bangkok's Triple Blast Incident
BANGKOK: -- The police took a suspected Iranian bomber of Bangkok's Triple Blast Incident last Tuesday for a crime reenactment at Soi Pridi Banomyong 31 yesterday.
A special squad of the city police's investigation department took Iranian suspect Mohammad Hazai to perform a crime reenactment at the site of explosions at Soi Pridi Banomyong 31 yesterday.
The crime reenactment started at his rented house in Sukhumvit 71's Soi Pridi Panomyong 31, which was the hiding place of his accomplices, when the first bomb exploded.
After that, he was taken to the Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link at Ramkhamhaeng Station where he bought a ticket and fled to the airport. Hazai also pointed at the Nasa Vegas Hotel that he used to check in. The Crime Suppression Division police then took Hazai for questioning.
Meanwhile, the Crime Suppression Division Chief Police Major General Supisarn Pakdinarunart stated that he had worked closely with Deputy National Police Chief Police General Pansiri Prapawat, who is heading the investigation team.
Supisarn said the Crime Suppression Division will take Hazai into custody before forwarding him to the previous investigation team for further investigations. He said he instructed 50 officers to keep an eye on him around the clock.
Supisarn added the police is eligible to detain the suspect for 48 hours until today. The police will bring him to the Bangkok South Criminal Court to imprison him on the first round.
Moreover, police revealed the latest piece of evidence in their investigation. Fifty-two stickers bearing the word "Sejeal" were found posted along a road in Klong Toey district.
The stickers were first seen inside the rented house, and on the suspect's motor bike as well as in the Nasa Vegas hotel room where another suspect, Rohani Leila, stayed.
Officials believe the stickers may have been used to mark specific locations in a plot to assassinate high-ranking Israeli officials who use the route.

I hoped they filmed it, and posted it on youtube. It should go viral.

That would require forward thinking. Hasn't arrived here yet.
