Jatupat’s lawyer Krisadang Nucharat told The Nation that the court had ruled that Jatupat’s detention, which began in December, would continue. Another appeal to the court for bail is planned for next Monday, he said.
High-profile figures on Wednesday morning came forward to post bail for Jatupat, including philosopher and social critic Sulak Sivaraksa, who joined with Jatupat’s father Viboon Boonpataraksa to raise bail.
Other guarantors, including academics Gothom Arya and Eakpant Pindavanija, and former National Human Rights Commission member Niran Pitakwatchara, also signed a letter guaranteeing that Jatupat would not flee from prosecution if he is released.
