Ten core members of the "yellow- shirt" protesters will report to police on Tuesday to answer charges of violating a speical security law banning demonstration in Bangkok, a PAD core leader said on Monday.

Maj Gen Chamlong Srimuang, a yellow-shirt People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) core leader, said the 10 will hear the charges at the Metropolitan Police Bureau, adding that supporters of the yellow-shirt group will not travel with them to put pressure on the police.

The PAD will also send a letter to national police chief Gen Wichean Potephosree arguing that the summonses issued for the 10 co-leaders were unjustified in law, he said.

The 10 who have been summonsed are: Maj-Gen Chamlong Srimuang, Sondhi Limthongkul, Prapan Khoonmee, Panthep Puapongphan, Rak Rakpong (Samana Pothirak, leader of the Santi Asoke sect), Suriyasai Katasila, Terdphum Jaidee, Pibhop Dhongchai, Amorn Amornrattananond and Tossapol Kaewthima.
