As a consequence, the court sentenced the group to 12-day detention during 15-26 June 2010 while all bail requests were denied.

The 11 UDD core figures alleged of terrorism comprise Mr Veera Muksikapong, Mr Nattawut Saikua, Mr Kwanchai Praipana, Mr Wiphuthalaeng Phatthanaphumthai, Mr Yosawarit Chuklom, Mr Nisit Sinthuprai, MD Weng Tochirakarn, Mr Korkaew Pikulthong, Mr Bhumkitti Sukchindathong, Mr Sombat Makthong and Mr Amnat Intarachote.
