The two construction workers from China charged with criminal trespass for protesting on top of two tower cranes at a worksite will be bailed out by migrant workers' group Home.

Wu Xiaolin, 47, is expected to be released today while Zhu Gulei, 24, will be out tomorrow. Their bail was set at $10,000 each.

The two will also be represented for free by Mr Ravinderpal Singh.

The lawyer told reporters that he was approached by Home, or the Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics, yesterday. He was unable to say if the two men intend to plead guilty.
