BANGKOK (AFP) - A court in Thailand on Tuesday sentenced a former police officer to 38 years in prison for attempting to fire a grenade at the defence ministry during political unrest in Bangkok last year. Retired Lance Corporal Bandit Sitthitum was convicted at the Criminal Court in Bangkok of conspiring to commit a terrorist act as well as illegal possession of a firearm and explosives, a court spokesman told AFP. 'The suspect's actions destabilised the country at a time when a number of acts of sabotage occurred against government facilities,' he said, quoting the court verdict.
