The Chiang Mai military court has rejected bail for the mayor of Chiang Mai provincial administration organization and ten other suspects charged with distributing mails allegedly distorting the content of the draft constitution.

T16816-CM

The 11 suspects were brought before the military court in Chiang Mai on Monday after their first detention term expired. Their lawyer, Chamnong Chaimongkol, asked the court for their bail.

The court however turned down the request for bail reasoning that there was no reason to change the previous court order to keep all the 11 suspects in detention.

After the court rejected his request for bail, Chamnong told the media that he would try again to bail his clients on August 26 when the 12-day detention term was due to expire.

The 11 suspects were identified as Boonlert Buranapakorn, mayor of Chiang Mai provincial administration organization (PAO); Tasanee Buranapakorn, vice mayor of Chiang Mai PAO; Pairat Maichompoo, vice mayor of Chiang Mai PAO; Tarntip Buranapakorn, a dentist attached to Chang Puek tambon municipality; Kachane Jiakkachorn, mayor of Chang Puek tambon municipality; Atipong Kammoon, an official attached to Chang Puek tambon municipality; Am-on Dubsoke, an official attached to Chang Puek tambon municipality; Supawadee Ngammuang, a director of Chiang Mai Tassanaporn Company; Kobkarn Sudeeda, an employee of Chiang Mai Tassanaporn Company; Krittikorn Polthaya, an official of Chang Puek tambon municipality; and Netitat Apiratinai, secretary of the mayor of Chang Puek tambon municipality.
