On 25 April 2023, Thai Lawyers for Human Rights (TLHR) reported that Hin (pseudonym),19, was granted bail by the Court of Appeal for Specialized Cases on appeal after his 4th bail request was rejected on 19 April 2023. Hin is charged with throwing small explosives on 21 November 2021 during a demonstration on Ratchaprarop Road.

The TLHR said that the Court allowed bail on a 30,000 baht bond. Hin was released after spending a month at the Bangkok Juvenile Observation and Protection Centre.

Hin was apprehended in the middle of the night on 24 March 2023 subject to a warrant issued by the Central Juvenile and Family Court for “being in possession of an explosive and causing an explosion”. The police asked the court the following day to issue a detention order.

Having been denied bail several times, Hin missed the opportunity to graduate from high school and to enter a university this year as he wishes.
