Kwanchai Sarakham, a hardline red-shirt leader from Udon Thani, on Wednesday turned himself in to authorities to serve two years in jail for conspiring to murder rival yellow shirts.

The Supreme Court last week found him guilty in absentia of attempted murder and physical assault.

Also known as Kwanchai Praipanna, he was president of the Khon Rak Udon Club, a red-shirt group in the northeastern province.

He was accused of attempted murder and assault by seven yellow shirts in attacking a rally in Nongprajak Park in 2008 that had left many people seriously injured.

Both the Criminal and Appeals Courts found Kwanchai guilty and sentenced him to two years and eight months in jail and fined him Bt350,000 plus statutory interest before the Supreme Court commuted the prison term to two years.
