EC Commissioners arrive at Bangkok Remand Prison

Three Election Commissioners arrived at Bangkok Remand Prison in Lad Yao on Tuesday evening after the Appeal Court rejected their request to release them on bail.

The three convicted; EC chairman Vasana Puemlarp, EC members Prinya Nakchadtree and Virachai Naewboonnien arrived in a white van at about 7pm. It is reported that they then went through registration process and were led to their cells. The prison ordered them dinner from a restaurant near the prison.

It is reported that they would receive no priviledge as they would have to change from their clothes to brown prison uniforms. In their cells, the prison prepare personal items for them, such as toothbrush, soap and towel. They would have to get up at 6am like other inmates.

It is not known yet how long they would stay behind bars. Their lawyers said they would submit to the Supreme Court on Wednesday a request to free them on bail.

Under Thai law, once jailed, the commissioners lose their right to retain their posts.

The Criminal Court found the group guilty of malfeasance for mishandling the April 2 snap election and subsequent election. Their election rights were also stripped of for ten years.
