The Criminal Court this morning indefinitely postponed its scheduled reading of the Supreme Court’s verdict on four former core members of the red-shirt movement charged with leading protesters in the 2007 storming of the residence of General Prem Tinsulanonda, the late president of the Privy Council, after they submitted a last-minute guilty plea.

 

Former chairman of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), or the red shirt movement, Veerakarn Musikapong, former UDD secretary-general Natthawut Saikua, former UDD core members Dr. Weng Tochirakarn and Wiputhalaeng Pattanapumkthai simultaneously submitted their guilty plea to the Criminal Court before the reading of the final verdict of the Supreme Court.

 

The Criminal Court accepted their guilty plea, which will be passed to the Supreme Court for consideration. As such, the final verdict in the case has been postponed until after the Supreme Court has considered the four defendants’ guilty pleas.
