Court rejects DSI's warrants request

The Criminal Court on Tuesday rejected the Department of Special Investigation's (DSI)request for arrest warrants for 16 core members of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC)for alleged violations of the emergency decree.

The court ruled there was insufficient evidence presented with the application to substantiate the request, which was filed on Sunday.

The 16 are Suthep Thaugsuban, Sathit Wongnoeytoey, Chumpol Julasai, Putthipong Punnakant, Issara Somchai, Withaya Kaewparadai, Thaworn Senneam, Nathapol Teepsuwan, Akanat Promphan, Anchalee Paireerak, Nitithorn Lamlua, Uthai Yodmanee, Samdin Lertbut, Gen Preecha Iamsuphan, Ratchayut Sirayothinpakdi or Amorn Amornrattananont and Kittichai Saisa-ard.

What about Jaywalking fines? I believe it is a fine of 250 baht per person according to the signs posted in the Asoke area. Can't authorities at least charge them 250 baht per person for loitering in the middle of the streets at busy intersections? Also, how does that work when people are laying down in tents? Is it a charge of 250 baht per hour? Or, is it just 250 baht each time they go back onto the street? Hmmmm... The questions that keep me up at night...

crunchy...."these pdrc rally were more peaceful than your violent redshirts." The worse thing is that PDRC had violated the emergency decree and illegally invaded government offices, shut down traffic roads, damaging police headquarters property, blockade of polling stations, no matter how peaceful their rallies are.

yes the courts and EC and all traditional conservative elements are ganging up on PTP. They want the old ways back and democracy is an obstacle. Their biased decisions are circus acts.

The red shirts' logic: when a Court doesn't rule in our favour, it's an injustice, and we won't respect the ruling..., and, when you don't accept to do things as we tell you, we will create violence, and you will be responsible for it... OMB! What a bunch! Imagine 'reforms' with those in power...

Incredible... But what do they want? The justice in this country is not impartial at all.

At least some people do not fall for Tarit's antics! Well done

This was expected and just adds to the long list of injusticies. Now if there is more violence created by these protest at least the DSI can say they tried to stop it.
