The seven detained Thais, including Panich Wikitsate, a Democrat Member of Parliament for Bangkok, Veera Somkwamkid, secretary general of People Network Against Corruption and Thailand Patriot Network core member, were arrested on Dec. 29, 2010 by Cambodian border protection army for illegal entry into Cambodian territory in Banteay Meanchey province and now are detained in Phnom Penh's Prey Sar prison.

On Dec. 30, deputy prosecutor of Phnom Penh Municipal Court Sok Roeun charged them with two cases -- illegal entry and illegally entering a military base along the border, crimes which in Cambodia carry penalties of up to six months and one year respectively and fine from 1 million to 2 million Cambodian riels (250-500 U.S. dollars).

On Jan. 6, the investigating judge of Phnom Penh Municipal Court, Chaing Sinat, had conducted a nearly 12 hour additional inquest on them, but the final decision has not been disclosed so far.
