A look at the Thai coup court

Ex-Minister Chaturon Chaisaeng
This article in the Bangkok Post gives some details about the post-coup military court system. The first person to be tried is former education minister Chaturon Chaisaeng. He has been denied bail and can be held for 12-day periods for a maximum of 84 days. There is a right to counsel but no right to appellate review. The vice admiral who heads the court expects it to be flooded with cases.
