Supreme Court upholds 2-year jail sentence for Jeng Dokjik

The Supreme Court today upheld the two-year jail sentence for former core member of the red-shirt movement Yoswarit Chuklom, alias Jeng Dokjik, after agreeing with the rulings of the first and the second courts for lese majeste.

After the ruling, he was immediately escorted by warden to Bangkok Remand Prison to serve the jail sentence with no suspension of jail term.

Jeng Dokjik was earlier sentenced to serve two years in prison with no suspension of jail term after both the Criminal Court and the Appeals Court found him guilty on lese majeste after he addressed a protest rally of the redshirt supporters on March 29, 2010.

In today's hearing of his final judgement, the Supreme Court judges agreed with the rulings of two previous courts that his speeches violated Article 112 of the Criminal Law and handed down the sentence with no suspension.

He was later escorted to serve two years in Bangkok Remand Prison.
