The Supreme Court today upheld the four-year prison terms imposed on 12 former core members of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) for their role in leading red-shirt protesters in breaking up the ASEAN Summit at the Royal Cliff Beach Resort in Pattaya on April 11th, 2009.

 

The Supreme Court, however, acquitted the 4th defendant, Mr. Somyot Promma, on the grounds that he was not a core member of the UDD, but an ordinary member.

 

Only Mr. Sakda Noppasit, the 10th defendant and currently secretary-general of Pheu Chart party, was present at the Pattaya provincial court today (Wednesday) when the Supreme Court’s verdict was read.
