The legal team of the Thai Patriots Network (TPN) will meet on Tuesday to discuss ways of helping the two Thais jailed in Cambodia and then file an appeal on Feb 11 against the court verdict sentencing them to jail, Chaiwat Sinsuwong said on Friday.
Veera Somkwamkid and his secretary Ratree Pipatanapaiboon were given jail sentences by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on charges of illegal entry and spying.
He said both Mr Veera and Ms Ratree were both insistent that they were not arrested on Cambodian soil, but the Foreign Ministry wanted them to accept the court's ruling that they were guilty as charged.
Karun Saingam, who is a member of the legal team, said the appeal would be submitted to the court on Feb 11 along with a bail request.
He called for more Thai people to join the TPN protest to protect Thai sovereignty.
