The Royal Thai Police Office had earlier sought court approval for warrants to arrest 13 protest leaders on charges of rebellion, illegal assembly and other related charges in violation of Sections 133, 116, 215 and 216 of the Criminal Code.
The 13 are: Sathit Wongnongtoey, Chumpol Julasai, Putthipong Punnakant, Issara Somchai, Witthaya Kaewparadai, Thaworn Senneam, Nathapol Teepsuwan, Akanat Prompan, Anchalee Paireerak, Nitithorn Lamlua, Uthai Yodmanee, Samdin Lertbut and Gen Preecha Iamsuphan.
The court said that since the prime minister had since dissolved the House of Representatives under Section 108 of the constitution, it believed the situation will improve.
It suggested police conduct further investigations and summon the 13 for questioning only. At this stage, there is no reason to issue a warrant for their arrest, the court said.The court earlier approved a warrant for the arrest of Suthep Thaugsuban on similar charges.
