Five of six core leaders of the People's Alliance for Democracy Friday reported to police to acknowledge charges concerning their intruding the Government House last year.

The PAD group, one of Thailand's active political groups, seized the government from Aug. 26 to Dec. 3 to protest against two then governments under Samak Sundaravej and Somchai Wongsawat, Thai News Agency reported.

Based on Articles 358 and 365 of the Criminal Code, if convicted, the combined penalties will be a jail term of up to three years and a fine of up to 10,000 baht (297.44 U.S. dollars).

As the PAD suspects have denied any wrongdoings, they declined to give any statement to police and have reserved their right to testify in court.

They are Chamlong Srimuang, Somsak Kosaisuk, Pipop Thongchai, Somkiart Pongpaiboon and Suriyasai Katasila.

Meanwhile, Sondhi Limthongkul, the sixth suspect, has been allowed to by the police to surrender at a later date due to his trip abroad.
