Bangkok (VNA) - Two key leaders of the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) - political wing of the Red-Shirt movement were freed on November 30.

The act came after the pair, Jatuporn Prompan and Nattawut Saikuea, had pledged to the junta government that they would not conduct political campaigns causing unrests in the country.

They were escorted from an army detention centre in Kanchaburin province to their homes in Bangkok after being held for more than 20 hours.

Earlier, the two signed a memorandum of understanding on complying with five general regulations of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO).

Jatuporn Prompan and Nattawut Saikuea were detained as they were heading to Rajapakti Park in Prachuab Khiri Khan province, which is at the centre of a corruption scandal.

On November 27, the Thai military administration accused several Red Shirt members of being behind an alleged scheme to cause chaos in the capital during the Loy Krathong Festival and the “Bike for Dad” event.

The police said planned attacks targeted Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha.-VNA
