The four SMRT drivers from China charged with instigating last week's strike, were on Thursday released on bail pending a further court mention on Dec 12.

Gao Yue Qiang, 32, Liu Xiangying, 33, and Wang Xianjie, 39, were out on bail of $10,000, while He Jun Ling, 32, who faces a second charge of inciting the strike was released on $20,000 bail.

The four accused persons left the Subordinate Courts in taxi, accompanied by a small group of unidentified persons.

It is also not known who posted their bail, although lawyer M.Ravi and representatives from migrant worker groups were present to help in the process.
