Somyot denied bail

We are sad to tell you that Somyot’s tenth request for bail was denied yesterday. At the last minute the Criminal Court informed Somyot’s family and legal team that they were denying bail on the basis that Somyot’s request for a constitutional review of Article 112 has been submitted by his lawyers and this case needs to be resolved before they will act.

We argue strongly with this decision, which is a denial of his basic rights which is even more significant because of his request for a constitutional review.

Given the recent death of Uncle SMS, held in prison under Article 112 we are highly concerned about Somyot’s deteriorating health and the impact of the Court’s decision on his capacity to mount a full defence against the charges.
