Court rejects second bail attempt by redshirt leader Jatuporn

The Criminal Court has rejected a second bail attempt by Jatuporn Phromphan with reason that his bail has been revoked just two weeks ago.

His lawyer Winyat Chartmontri told reporters that he has sought bail for temporary release for Jatuporn, leader of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) from the Criminal Court after his client had spent 15 days in the prison after his bail was revoked on October 11.

He said Jatuporn has accepted the legal consequences for breaching the bail conditions after spending 15 days in prison, and promised he would be more cautious not to repeat the same offences if he is granted bail again.

He sought mercy from the court for bail, the lawyer said.

However the court has replied that as the Criminal Court has just recently revoked his bail on October 11 to prevent further damages to be incurred by his release from prison, there is no reason whatsoever to make any change to the bail revocation right now.

His request for bail therefore is rejected, the court said.

The lawyer said he would consult with his client to consider whether to appeal or not and would see the appropriate time for next move.
