Court to accept PAD’s appeal against arrest warrants

September 17th, 2008 - 2:16 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi  

The Court of Appeals orders the Court of First Instance to accept an appeal filed by the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) for the withdrawal of arrest warrants against nine PAD leaders.

The Court of Appeals says there is no law which prohibits an appeal against an arrest warrant and the nine PAD leaders have the right to file the appeal as they are affected by the issuance of the warrants.

The Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for the nine PAD leaders on August 27th following PAD’s seizure of the Government House and other government places.
