Thirty-one leading members of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) have been indicted in the Criminal Court on a range of charges including terrorism in connection with the seizure of Don Mueang and Suvarnabhumi airports in 2008. 

Prosecutors state in the indictment that the 31 violated the emergency decree imposed by the then-Somchai Wongsawat government on Nov 29, 2008 and incited PAD protesters to occupy the two airports.

Their intention was to force the Somchai government to resign.
