Another suspect of lese-majeste arrested

The Department of Special Investigation arrests a suspect publicizing lese majeste information on websites.

DSI Director-General Pol.Maj.Gen.Thawi Sodsong led officers to raid a residence of Mr Suwicha Thakhor, a suspect of the case, in Khannayao area following a lead that the place was used by Mr Suwicha to publicize lese majeste content on various websites. The suspect’s computer was seized as evidence.

Mr Suwicha, who had fled to stay with his cousin in Nakhon Phanom province, was arrested by investigators of the DSI Office of International Crime while he was buying goods at a market in Nakhon Phanom province. He denied all charges.

DSI will bring the suspect back to its headquarters for interrogation today (January 15th). (PRD)

The campaign of intimidation continues and its pace is increasing.

Change with Abhisit ? Yes we can’t.

Now you know the trick : your competitor, your work collegue, your boss, your neighbor annoys you ?

Just call the police, and accuse him of “lese-majeste”… and tell them that he’s using his computer to defame the royal family.

    There appears to be a problem posting comments the past few days. Personally I’ve posted 4 comments none of which show.

    Just one of the reasons why I left Thailand and went to teach in Japan instead. Thailand is becoming a disgusting, restrictive, racist, and bigoted country that harasses and jails anyone who doesn’t agree with the govt currently in power.

    Anyone who goes to Thailand is nuts. All tourists should stay away from Thailand. Vote with your money and don’t support this disgusting show of bullying and harassment. If you want to travel to SE Asia go to Korea or Japan instead. People are just as nice, the governments are more normal, and you don’t take a chance you might get arrested if you say something a Thai thinks is lese majeste.

    Now you know the trick …

    spot on !

    although it is not at all new trick.

    this is exactly how it was being done during Stalin times.
    well, pretty much as in Khmer rouge regime, or even during the witch hunt in medieval Europe, or any other kind of purge (to bigger or lesser degree).

    Indeed this is more serious than the usual government antics we gleefully ridicule. The hapless Abhisit appears to be nothing more than a cardboard cutout mouthing prepared scripts, while Wonderland regresses away from fledgling democracy to .. well, just a little bit more like Burma every day. Hate to say it, but even ol Thaksin looked good compared to what has gone down lately….

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.
