Thailand's Criminal Court on Tuesday rejected a request by anti-government "red-shirt" leaders to revoke their arrest warrants, the Thai News Agency reported.

According to the court, the arrest warrants for 16 anti- government leaders were legally issued under the emergency decree, the agency reported.

The "red-shirt" leaders are issued the warrants for allegedly violating the emergency laws by leading a gathering of more than five people.

The "red-shirt" rally has been held from March 12 and they are now gathering at the Rathchaprasong Intersection in the center of capital Bangkok.

Totally, 27 people lost their lives and some 1,427 were wounded during the recent four major clashes between the protestors and security forces, including the April 10's ones.
