3 more protest leaders denied bail

Three more protest leaders have been denied bail after being arrested in an ongoing government crackdown on the pro-democracy movement.

Parit “Penguin” Chiwarak, Panusaya “Rung” Sithijirawattanakul and Nutchanon Payakaphan remain in jail after Pathum Thani Provincial Court refused to grant them bail on Thursday.

Meanwhile the Facebook accounts of human rights lawyer Arnon Nampa and fellow prominent activist Prasiddhi Grudharochana have disappeared after the two were arrested together.

Arnon had previously said in a Facebook post that he had been denied access to a lawyer, a move that violated his basic rights and endangered his safety.

On Thursday, protesters heeded a call made earlier by Arnon to gather for a rally at Bangkok’s Ratchaprasong intersection, in defiance of emergency rule imposed overnight.

Arnon was later reportedly transported to Chiang Mai to face sedition charges for speaking on stage about the monarchy at prior rallies in Chiang Mai and Pathum Thani.

Also reportedly still in jail is Jatupat “Pai Dao Din” Boonpattarasaksa, who was arrested on Tuesday in Bangkok. He was detained along with 19 other protesters, who refused the offer of bail-release unless Jatupat was also set free.
