Another lese-majeste case : arrest warrant against Veera

The lese-majeste crunching machine continues unabated.

After the couple at the cinema, the woman a the cinema, the BBC journalist, the Prime Minister’s Office Minister, Da Torpedo (in jail since july, bail denied), Sonthi… here is another case.

The Criminal Court yesterday approved a warrant for the arrest of politician and television host Veera Musikapong on lese majeste charges.

The warrant was sought by Chanasongkhram police investigators in connection with Mr Veera’s speech on May 6 last year at a pro-Thaksin Shinawatra United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship rally.

Police deemed Mr Veera’s rally speech as insulting to the monarchy.

The court found that there were grounds to grant the warrant and asked police to report to the court within seven days after the arrest is made. (Bangkok Post)
