Watana bailed

21 04 2016

Khaosod reports that Watana Muangsook has been bailed and released from detention by the military dictatorship after three days being held in Army bases.

As a result, “[a]ctivists … canceled daily protests demanding the release of Pheu Thai politico Watana … from military detention…”. They pledged to continue the struggles against the military dictatorship.

It was a military court that released him on bail of 80,000 baht. The court “barred him from ‘inciting unrest,’ participating in political activities and leaving the country without its permission.”

He was scheduled to be freed at Bangkok Remand Prison later Thursday night.

It seems that Watana is charged with violating a forced agreement with an illegitimate regime under “laws” that regime concocted to protect itself.
