Apart from Penguin, other activists still behind bars include Panupong “Mike” Jadnok, lawyer Arnon Nampa, singer Chaiamorn “Ammy” Kaewwiboonpan and Panusaya “Rung” Sithijirawattanakul, who five months ago was named an inspiring Thai female leader by the BBC. Panusaya has been on her own hunger strike for nearly a month now.

Definitely a follow-up on the decision of the court concerning Mr. "It was just flower" Thammanat. But yeah, what are the chances of getting this through...

I think Penguin and most of the others are now , finally , out on bail.

The opposition Move Forward Party is working on a bill, to be submitted to the House of Representatives, seeking to amend the Criminal Code to prevent law enforcement officers from distorting the law in a way which could benefit or cause damage to the accused or defendants.

It's about time... 

 

But as for law enforcement officers it should first make sure they actually know the law...

 

Which they don't. I have first hand experience with officers making up their own law and siding with a Thai when it was the Thai who actually wronged me.

The conditional bail release of two of them was reported here yesterday.

The Khaosodenglish report left out this part of the conditions of their bail :-

 

"to refrain from joining activities that could cause unrest"

 

Nice and vague enough so that effectively they are under threat of being returned to jail at the whim of those higher up whenever it suits them.
