Thammasat University students council announced a protest on August 10 after an order to prevent rallies that could spread Covid-19 was enforced from Monday.

On Tuesday, the Criminal Court sentenced pro-democracy activists Worawan “Pa Pao” Sae-aung and six other defendants to a year in jail with three-year parole, 20,000 baht fine, and 24 hours of community service.

The defendants were sued for holding the protest on August 11, 2021, that could spread Covid-19.
