How to kill the thai internet industry ? Owner of free picture-hosting site arrested

Police arrested the owner of a free picture-hosting website after police traced pictures of a woman having sex with her ex-boyfriend to the site.

Siriporn Suwanpithak, 26, was arrested at his company in Pathum Thani.

He said he did not know that his site, was used to host the pictures of the woman.

The woman has filed complaints with police that her ex-boyfriend distributed her pictures taken while having sex with him on Internet.

The ex-boyfriend has been earlier arrested.

Police traced the sources of the pictures and found that they were hosted on Siriporn’s free-service site. (Nation)

Congratulations to the thai authorities. To arrest someone, as the owner of a hosting company, because some pictures -with no link with the owner- were hosted on the website… is simply astonishing.

I mean, if it was a least a political story (like the 29 websites accused of lese-majeste)… but here it’s just a ridiculous case.

And it will without any doubt send a clear sign to the thai internet industry : GET OUT ! Leave the country.

Potentially, all the thai public websites, located in Thailand, are threatened. Just upload a naughty picture… then complain to the police… Et voila.

    Thanks VoiD for your… interesting comments.

    I would rather say : scary.

    The guy was sent to jail on may 22 at 10 PM.
    And then was released may 23 at 7h30 PM.

    1 day in jail, like a criminal, for a totally stupid story.

    Again, congratulations to the glorious thai police, always willing to serve and protect the thai people, with dedication and resolve.

    Ah ah ah ah ah. This country is on bad path…

    No. The ex boyfriend was arrested too.

    It’s very clearly said on thai sources (Matichon etc.)

    And also the website of the owner (26 years old by the way):

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
