The Criminal Court on Wednesday rejected a request for the release on bail of red-shirt Yossawaris Chuklom, alias Jeng Dokchik, on the grounds there is no solid guarantee he will not again break the bail conditions.
The request was filed by Winyat Chartmontree, a lawyer for the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), on Sept 3 after the Criminal Court revoked his bail on Aug 22 for criticising and intimidating Constitution Court judges.
The lawyer filed a fresh bail request and offered 600,000 baht as collateral. Justice Minister Pracha Promnok and former deputy interior minister Sermsak Pongpanich testified as witnesses on his behalf in court, guaranteeing that Mr Yossawaris would be well behaved if released.
