The Bangkok South Criminal Court on Thursday rejected an application for warrants to arrest five pro-democracy protesters who led the march to the German embassy on Monday.

Pol Colonel Pitak Suthikul, in his capacity as acting superintendent of Bangkok’s Thungmahamek Police Station, requested arrest warrants for Passarawalee Thanakijwibulpol, 25, Korakot Sangyenpan, 28, Chanin Wongsri, 20, Cholathit Chotsawas, 21, and Benja Apan, 21, for sedition under Article 116 of the Criminal Code and other charges.

Upon studying the case, the court advised police to first issue a summonses because the suspects are students who assembled for a short time and have no intention to flee.
