Penguin was released under several conditions; he must refrain from political activities, must not participate in protests and will not be allowed to travel outside Thailand. Earlier, the Thai court demanded a large sum of money – more than 2 millions baht – as bail for his release. Within a few hours, donations for this sum reached more than 10 million baht. Meanwhile, the other key leader, Anon Numpa, remains in prison.
