Military court charges 'armed' Khon Kaen group

- +

A military court is likely to reject bail requests for 26 defendants facing terrorism charges for their alleged ties to a militant red-shirt group, their lawyers say. 

On Friday at 10am, a court order was sent to Khon Kaen Central Prison formally charging all 26 suspects on nine counts. This includes violations of National Council for Peace and Order directives on public gatherings of more than five people, as well as collecting arms or conspiring to terrorise or knowing the terrorists and committing acts to protect fellow conspirators.

The firearms charge violates Section 78 of the 1947 Act Controlling Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives, Fireworks and Imitation of Firearms and carries a maximum sentence of death.
