Bail for some, jail for others

The Bangkok Post reports that the military court “has allowed bail for the eight administrators of a Facebook page mocking the prime minister but police asked to further detain two them who were also charged with lese majeste.”

The first number refers to the Facebook 8, arrested for poking fun at The Dictator, General Prayuth Chan-ocha. They are: Natthika Worathaiyawich, Harit Mahaton, Noppakao Kongsuwan, Worawit Saksamutnan, Yothin Mangkhangsanga, Thanawat Buranasiri, Supachai Saibut, and Kannasit Tangboonthina. Poking The Dictator has seen them charged with sedition and computer crimes.

More seriously, Natthika and Harit have been charged with lese majeste law. The police want these two held without bail.

The Post produced a useful table of the recent charges against the 10 arrested in recent days. We reproduce it below:
