THAI ‘RED SHIRT’ LEADER BACK BE­HIND BARS

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BANGKOK: A Thai court jailed a fire­brand leader of the “red shirt” op­po­si­tion group yes­ter­day, rul­ing that he had vi­o­lated bail con­di­tions by us­ing “harsh words against oth­ers” while talk­ing pol­i­tics on TV. Jatu­porn Prompan, a key leader of the red shirts loyal to ousted ex-pre­mier Thaksin Shi­nawa­tra, was charged in 2010 with ter­ror­ism. A court granted him bail on the con­di­tion that he did not in­sult or de­fame oth­ers or stoke un­rest. – Reuters
