  • Description

    The Criminal Court in Bangkok was under heavy security to guard against possible disturbances when student leaders appeared for the first time since the riots at Thammasat University a week ago.

    The student leaders arrived handcuffed and were escorted into the court by armed police. They are some of the 600 people still under detention after the violence at the University.

    The Thai authorities are holding the detainees.....most of whom are students.....as suspected subversives.

    Those still under arrest face possible military trial under a variety of charges arising from the violence which led to the downfall of the previous government, under Mr. Seni Pramoj, and its replacement by a military triumvirate.

    The student leaders were ordered to be transferred form where the other detainees are being held, in the Police Training School, to a maximum security prison. The prison was formally reserved for hard core criminals and political prisoners.
