The Criminal Court yesterday sentenced red-shirt co-leader Jatuporn Prompan to six months in jail, suspended for two years, and fined him 50,000 baht for defaming Democrat Party leader and former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva. 

The suit concerned remarks he made about military operations against red-shirt protesters in 2010.
