Red Shirt MP Korkaew has bail revoked, Heavy Restrictions for Other 4

On Friday afternoon, a Criminal Court in Bangkok revoked the bail of Red Shirt MP Korkaew Pikulthong. Along with 23 other Red Shirts, Korkaew is set to stand trial next month for “terrorism” charges. His bail was revoked due to a violation of his original bail conditions that occurred during a speech he made outside of the Parliament building earlier this summer.

Korkaew has been taken to Laksi Prison and is likely to remain there until the 21st of December, when the parliamentary session resumes. The judge upheld the bail of four other Red Shirt MPs, including Dr Weng, Karun, Nattawut and Wophuthalaeng, but under restrictive terms. They are no longer allowed to speak on stage or travel overseas.
