The Metropolitan Police Bureau has confirmed it is filing to have bail revoked for 5 pro-democracy leaders accused of breaking their bail conditions. The move comes after a number of political rallies in Bangkok last weekend. The Pattaya News reports that Sukhun Prommayon from the MPB says that an investigation into the behaviour of protest leaders attending the rallies shows they have broken the terms of their bail agreements. The MPB has also pledged to bring charges against a number of protest leaders.

Some of the offences levied against the 5 include allegations that they incited the crowd and gave speeches at the rallies, in breach of their bail conditions. Sukhun says the 5 in question had ignored warnings from officers.

“Police have warned the leaders but there are still violations, so the investigating officers decided to file an application to revoke the bail. It has already been sent to the public prosecutor and is in the process of the prosecutor’s consideration.”

The MPB has not confirmed the names of those who may have their bail revoked. The Pattaya News has listed the protest leaders who are currently out on bail as Jatupat “Pai Dao Din” Boonpattararaksa, Panusaya “Rung” Sithijirawattanakul, Panupong “Mike” Jadnok, Chaiyamorn Kaewwiboonphan (“Ammy the Bottom Blues”), Parit “Penguin” Chiwarak, Anon Nampa, Patiwat “Mor Lam Bank” Saraiyaem, Somyot Pruksakasemsuk, and Pasarawalee “Mild” Thanakitwibulpol.
