BANGKOK -- Thailand's pro-democracy movement is becoming increasingly leaderless after the Criminal Court in Bangkok denied bail on Monday to three more leading protest figures: Panusaya "Ruang" Sithijirawattanakul, Panupong "Mike Rayong" Jadnok and Jatupat "Pai Dao Din" Boonpattararaksa.

The three have been charged with lese-majeste in addition to other alleged offenses.
