Political prisoners of the military junta

The total number of recorded political prisoners that the Thai junta have arrested in the first 50 days since the May 2014 coup d’état is as follows:

At least 11 people have been charged with lèse-majesté, with 9 still detained in prison and 2 people released on bail.

At least 46 people have been arrested for taking part in political protests against the coup. Only 22 have been released on bail. The rest are in prison. They are all activists from Khon Kan. The “Khon Kan 24” have also been fitted up with charges of “terrorism”.

At least 10 people were detained for not reporting to the military as instructed by the junta. All have been released on bail.

Three people have been jailed for “advocating disturbances” and another 3 have been released on bail.

All the political prisoners are pro-democracy activists, none are from Sutep’s anti-democratic mob.
