An Australian man being held by Thai authorities for breaching the state of emergency in Bangkok has had his appeal for bail rejected.
Conor David Purcell appealed to the Supreme Court for bail after having his original request rejected.
He said bail was justified because the charges against him have not been made clear.
The accused has been in custody for more than three weeks for allegedly breaching emergency law by giving anti-government speeches to Red Shirt protesters at their Bangkok rally.
However the judge refused to grant the bail appeal, saying that his behaviour in court has been inappropriate.
