Thai Police: ‘SEJEAL’ Stickers May Have Marked Escape Route

To follow up on my previous post about the cryptic “SEJEAL” stickers:

The Bangkok Post reports today:

The mysterious stickers found posted along a road in Klong Toey district definitely belonged to the group of suspects believed to have been involved in the Feb 14 bombings on Sukhumvit Soi 71, police said.

Fifty-two stickers bearing the word “Sejeal” were found on electricity posts and signboards on Duang Phithak Road.

“We are sure they belong to the suspects, as we found about 300 similar stickers at a house rented by Leila Rohani, one of the five suspects,” said a police source inside the Metropolitan Police’s investigation team in charge of the case.

The officer said authorities believed the stickers were used to mark the escape route for the gang members after they completed a bombing mission, rather than marking potential target sites.

Examinations of the stickers found a phrase which indicated that they were produced outside the country, said the source. Investigators were trying to locate the sticker’s manufacturer.

“It is very likely that Ms Leila brought them in from a foreign country,” he said.
