Media to protest Computer-Crime Act by not bailing themselves out during trial

Alan Morrison, an Australian who is the editor of Phuketwan.com website gave an interviewed (in Thai), after being sued by the Royal Thai Navy for defamation based on a news report of abuses against Burmese Rohingya by Navy servicemen, using a new Computer-Crime Act, said that he and the news reporter would not personally pay for their own bailing out, although permissible by court during trial, to symbolically protest against an attempt to shut up the media. If that is the case they would possibly go to jail after April 17's arraignment.
