Student activists face charges at Bangkok Military Court

  • Test
Six student activists of the so-called New Democracy Movement group late this morning appeared at the Bangkok Military Court to hear if the military protection will pursue criminal charges against them in the court.

The students, who included Siriwich Serithiwat, widely known as Ja New, faced several charges pressed by railway police for their attempt to travel to Hua Hin by train to probe alleged corruption by senior military officers in the construction of the Rajabhakti museum park.

The charges include violating the military junta’s ban of politically motivated assembly of over five persons.
