Police Ask for Re-Arrest of Bailed Anti-Junta Protesters

BANGKOK, Aug 7 - Police have asked the Criminal Court to bring seven anti-coup protest leaders released Monday back to detention because they had returned to the anti-junta movement at Sanam Luang shortly after having been released on bail.

 Deputy Metropolitan Police commissioner Pol. Maj-Gen. Jutti Thammanowanit called on the court to allow the police to bring the leaders of the United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship into detention once again, because they had returned to the prolonged Sanam Luang gathering after their release August 6.

  

The seven, who were released on bail after 12 days confinement at Bangkok Remand Prison, included former key members of the now-dissolved Thai Rak Thai Party — Veera Musikapong, Jakraphob Penkair, Aphiwan Wiriyachai, Weng Tojirakarn, Chatuphorn Phrompan, Nattawut Saikua and Wiphuthalaeng Phatthanaphumthai. 

Police photographed the seven anti-junta leaders showing up on the elevated platform at

Sanam Luang Monday evening, though they had been released on condition that they not resume the anti-junta movement anywhere, according to the deputy metropolitan police chief.
 Chesada Chandee, lawyer for the anti-coup protest leaders, protested against the police’s request for further detention of the clients. 

However, the Criminal Court has given the suspects three days to clarify themselves regarding their alleged involvement in the sustained anti-junta movement. 

The activists were arrested on charges of instigating the July 22 clashes between anti-junta demonstrators and riot police outside the Bangkok residence of chief privy councillor Gen. Prem Tinsulanonda.
