Thailand Court Approves Arrest Of Major "Red-Shirt" Leaders

As reported by Thai News Agency, Thailand's criminal court on Friday approved to issue arrest warrants against three core leaders include Veera Musikapong, Nattawut Saikua and Jatuporn Prompan of anti-government protesters known as "red-shirts" who caused the shutdown of the Rathchaprasong Intersection, a major commercial area in the capital Bangkok.
Last Wednesday, rhe latest move followed the criminal court's Thursday approval of issuance of arrest warrants against seven other "red-shirt" leaders, who led the protesters to siege and storm the parliament compound.

New arrest warrants were delivered as Nattahwut led the " red-shirts" to stage a rally at ThaiCom satellite station in central province of Pathum Thani, demanding the government to reopen the broadcast of red-shirts' People TV satellite channel which has been blocked since Thursday morning.

The "red shirts" also urged the government to withdraw security forces deployed inside the satellite station.
