Protest in Thailand

The Criminal Court on Friday approved police warrants for the arrest of 17 prominent members of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) for having led the red-shirts to block the Ratchaprasong intersection since April 3, Pol Col Supisan Pakdinarunart, acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division, said.
Among the 17 were UDD core leaders Veera Musikhapong, Jatuporn Prompan and Natthawut Saikua.

Pol Col Supisan said the Crime Suppression Division submitted the request for arrest warrants to the Criminal Court  on Thursday nigh. He declined tp give further details, saying he would rather leave that to the Centre for Public Administration in Emergency Situations.
Earlier on Thursday, arrest warrants were issued for seven UDD leading members, including Arisman Pongruangrong, Suporn Atthawong, and Payap Panket, for forcibly entering parliament in violation of the emergency decree.
