Pheu Thai MP Released On Bail

    (10 May) The Criminal Court has granted bail to Mr. Korkaew Pikultong, a Pheu Thai Party MP and member of the Redshirt leadership.


    Mr. Korkaew had been fighting terrorism charges for his role in 2010 political protests which turned violent. His bail was earlier revoked after making offensive remarks about the Constitutional Court.

    Today, the Criminal Court judges said they had reviewed Mr. Korkaew′s request for temporary release and found that the MP′s behaviors have been softening. Assets of 600,000 baht were posted for his bail.

    Nonetheless, the court has set conditions for his bail: he is barred from making insulting remarks or making such remarks on stages of political rallies.
