BANGKOK, 2 March 2011 (NNT) – The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has voiced its concerns over a new wave of violence in the kingdom after seven core leaders of the United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) have been granted temporary release.

NHRC Chairperson Prof Dr Amara Pongsapich has also warned those UDD key leaders that they should think and plan carefully before making any political movements as well as avoid inciting violence in the society; otherwise, their popularity will certainly erode in the new general election.

The Criminal Court recently granted bails for seven UDD core leaders and one coordinator, Mr Phumkitti Sukchindathong. They had been detained in prison for nine months on terrorism charges.
