Posted by arnon_k On January - 4 - 2011

United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) chair Thida Thavornseth on Tuesday submitted application to the Criminal Court seeking the release on bail of seven red-shirt leaders being detained on terrorism charges.

Mrs Thida, accompanied by a lawyer, filed the request to the court and deposited 21 million baht cash, 3 million baht for each of the seven, as bail collateral.

The seven are Weng Tojirakarn, Korkaew Pikulthong, Natthawut Saikua, Nisit Sinthuprai, Kwanchai Sarakham, Wiphuthalaeng Pattanaphumthai, and Yosawaris Chuklom.

Attached to the bail applications were copies of the announcement revoking the emergency decree in Bangkok and three surrounding provinces, the Rights and Liberties Protection Department’s advice, and recommendations to the government of the Truth for Reconcilation Commission chaired by Kanit na Nakorn.

The requests are being considered by the court.

Earlier today, Mrs Thida went to the Bangkok Remand Prison where the seven UDD leaders signed the bail requests.

Former UDD chair Veera Musikhapong also paid a visit to the seven. He did not give an interview to reporters.
