Seven leaders of anti-government protests in Thailand promised to surrender to police on Thursday after the Appeals Court dropped insurrection charges against them, their spokesman said.

"All seven leaders will surrender but we will meet this afternoon to set the time and after that we will bail ourselves out to continue our fight," PAD spokesman Suriyasai Katasila told AFP.

"We have insisted for a long time that the insurrection charges are unconstitutional, illegitimate, an over-reaction and based on false witnesses and evidence to prevent people from going ahead with our movement," he added.
