THE SUPREME Court approved bail requests for famous former TV news host Sorrayuth Suthassanachinda and his employee on Monday.

Both were sentenced to lengthy jail terms late last month over bribery and embezzlement charges related to the sale of commercial airtime during his popular news programme, which was broadcast by the MCOT more than a decade ago. The Supreme Court decided to approve the bail requests of Sorrayuth and his employee, Montha Thiradej, after accepting their appeals. 

They were released on Bt5-million bail each. As part of their bail conditions, they are required to report to court every three months. They are also barred from making overseas trips. Sorrayuth left the Bangkok Remand Prison at about 7pm.
