Chuvit to be released this Saturday

Chuvit Kamolvisit, an outspoken television show host and former leader of the now-defunct Rak Thailand Party, will be released on Saturday, July 21, after serving a one-month jail term at the Bangkok Remand Prison, Corrections Department director-general Pol Col Narat Sawetanan said today.

The Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions sentenced Chuvit to one month in jail after finding him guilty of filing a false assets declaration to the National Anti-Corruption Commission.

Pol Col Narat said Chuvit has been detained since June 21 and is due to be released on July 21. Chuvit will be released after going through a normal procedure.
