PROMINENT activist lawyer Anon Nampha who has been sentenced to four years in jail and fined 20,000 baht for violating Section 112 of the Criminal Code, known as the lese majeste law, and the Emergency Decree over a demonstration in 2020 has been refused bail for the third time, Matichon newspaper said.
The Lawyers for Human Rights Centre said on Wednesday Nov. 1 they had applied for bail for Anon who was given four years in jail without parole over a speech he gave at the Democracy Monument on Oct. 14, 2020 but this was again denied.
The centre added that the Appeals Court had many times not granted bail to defendants, always stating that there were no grounds to change the original order.
As a result Anon has now been detained for 39 days.
