Natthawut Saikua and 10 other "red- shirt" leaders will seek their release on bail on Tuesday, "red- shirt" leader Jatuporn Promphan said Monday, quoting by the Nation online.

Jatuporn said the 11 "red-shirt" leaders' 30-day detention period under the emergency decree will expire on Tuesday so police will need to seek a court approval under the normal Criminal Procedure Code to further detain the 11 "red-shirt" leaders.

As a result, the "red-shirt" leaders will seek their release on bail by placing 1 million baht (30,855 U.S. dollars) in cash each as a guarantee.

Jatuporn said he expected that the 11 "red-shirt" leaders would get bail like him and another opposition Pheu Thai MP Karun Hosakul.

Shortly after the end of the prolonged-anti-government rally in central Bangkok, they surrendered and have been detained on charge of breaking the emergency law.

The death toll from a series of violent clashes between the " red-shirt" UDD protesters and troops during March 12 and May 19 in central Bangkok stood at 88 as some 1,885 others were wounded.
