Thai army releases “Red shirt” protest leaders

(VOVworld) – Thailand’s army on Wednesday released leaders of the “red shirt” movement (the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship – UDD) which supports the civilian movement ousted in the coup last week. They were detained for a week without any accusations.

Those who were arrested and freed since the army took over Thailand had to sign a commitment to ending their political activities.

The Bangkok Post cited a source reporting that former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is still in Bangkok and not under house arrest. Yingluck is allowed to travel freely in the country but not to leave Thailand and has to inform the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) if going outside Bangkok.
