Four activists charged over anti-government protests get bail
The Criminal Court on Saturday granted bail to four activists who allegedly participated in the anti-government protest at the Din Daeng Intersection.
Three activists -- Thapchai Sinonyang (22), Chanadol Loymankong (24), and Sahachat Yongchaturas (19) -- were charged with carrying ping pong bombs and other materials during the protest on Friday. All the suspects denied the charge and sought release on bail.
The Criminal Court set the bail amounts at THB110,000 per person for the first and second suspects and at THB35,000 for the third suspect, with the condition that they not repeat the alleged offences or participate in activities that may result in chaos.
The Criminal Court also granted bail to Prawit Thiboonbun (19), who allegedly set fire to a police traffic control booth at the Din Daeng intersection on August 10. The bail amount was set at THB47,000 with conditions similar to those for the other three suspects.
