Thailand dives into ridicule : a fourth lese-majeste complaint against BBC’s journalist !

And a new one ! The fourth !

After the fanatic cop (3 complaints against J.Head), helped by the british useful idiot, here is the fanatic thai translator ! And to change : a woman.

All against Jonathan Head, the BBC’s journalist in Bangkok, and included the whole board of the FCCT. All fighting for the thai monarchy, seriously endangered by vicious attacks coming from the New Little Satan : the BBC.

G.Orwell is your auteur de chevet ? You feel close to Goebbels ? You like mind control ? And overall, you cherish surrealism and non-sense ?

You should therefore celebrate Thailand and its famous lese-majeste law. A law that allows every man, woman, child, plant and probably every living organisms (including germs and virus) to fill a complaint for lese-majeste against anybody.

The point is : the thai authorities can’t (and don’t want to) amend this stupid law. And a thai police officer would never discard such complaint… Fear. Fear.

And that’s the deadly trap : the lese-majeste law is sustainable only if it’s not used.

The lese-majeste is a bomb blowing off in the thai authorities hands. Over and over again. The more inane people are filling charges, the more the bomb is blowing off. They are trapped.

ASTV Manager reports that today (June 30) at 9:30pm, a Miss Luksana Kornsilpa aged 57 and a translator and adviser in the private sector filed a lese majeste complaint with Lt. Col. Decha of the Lumpini Police Station to proceed with a case against Jonathan Head of the BBC and the 13 committee members of the FCCT for selling the DVD of Jakrapob’s presentation at the FCCT on August 29, 2007.

She states that she filed the complaint as a Thai who loves the monarchy and she says that the FCCT arranging for Jakrapob to speak and the selling of the DVD falls within the category of wanting to bring down the monarchy and destroy national security. (Bangkok Pundit)

Let’s see how our dashing Prime Minister, Abhisit, is going to handle the situation… Let’s see what kind of cheap rethoric he’ll be able to produce to give an opinion. Or an explanation.


The board, includes three British nationals including the BBC‘s Bangkok correspondent Jonathan Head, three American nationals, including two working for Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal, an Australian national and a Thai news reader for Channel 3, Karuna Buakamsri. […]

A perfect move to attract several very large western media’s attention ! Well done miss Luksana 😉

Social critic and lese majeste case defendant Sulak Sivaraksa, reacting to the news, told The Nation yesterday that “the problem of [abusing] lese majeste law is now utterly messy“.

“The fact that leading world intellectuals like Noam Chomsky and others have petitioned to [PM] Abhisit [Vejjajiva to reform the law] is a testimony to it. If we let it goes on like this it will get even messier. It’s time for the government to do something.”

A source within the FCCT, speaking on condition of anonymity, said he was “surprised” at the latest allegation, which came after two years of the speech being made, adding that “it places Thailand in a very poor light”.

Poor light ? A serious understatement. And of course it took 2 years to miss Laksana to make her move… She must be a rather slow translator…

But the best, truely fanatic style, is kept for the end :

In the comments’ section on ASTV Manager’s website, most posters expressed support for Laksana and praised her for the move.

One said: “Put them in jail for 99 years.”

Another asked the site to post a picture of Jonathan Head so the person could attack him if he or she ran into him.

Welcome to Thailand.

    This is the end, beautiful friend,

    Actually, here is a case where this could not have happened to a nicer guy and a nicer group of biased people. J Head and BBC have had it in for Thailand with their biased reporting on the south and sucked up to Thaksin for years. Not to mention their parasitization of the Tsunami in Phuket.

    One of my favorite websites:

    Now, the Torpeado, maybe she is out there is commie chinese la la land but at least she believes in what she says and does, agree or not. But these bbc hacks are cut from a different, commerical, cloth altogether. I dont mind to see him get a taste of lease majesty Karma. That’s my opinion anyway.

    Sammy ,
    That’s not your opinion.
    That’s what you have been brainwashed to think since the day you were born .
    If you gave not read it yet , I can only advise you to grab of copy of George Orwell’s 1984.
    Then we can talk .

    Sammy, you just don’t get it : to know if the J.Head and the FCC are biased, a little bit, a lot, is totally irrelevant.

    What is relevant is that any degenerated individual, mentally ill, bozo, clown, drug addict, criminal, abducted by aliens, gurus, or your maid, whatever or whoever else can fill charges for lese-majeste.

    And the process will go through, because the poor police officer who will receive the complaint just can’t discard it.

    Okay ?

    And furthermore, even more ridiculous, it’s the fourth complaints for lese-majeste against J.Head…. I mean why not 28 ? Or 56 ? Or even 159 ? Where is the frontier between ridicule and… sanity ?

    I mean it’s not Lalaland anymore, it’s a totally new galaxy !

    And third point : J.Head is not Somchai, driver in Songkla… He’s a freaking BBC journalist, a highly respected media… worldwide (excepted in Lala countries such a Iran, Yemen, Burma, Zimbabwe and other delicious “democracies”)…

    It’s like Thailand is taking great care, extremely great care to touch the bottom of ridicule. And infamy.

    It’s amazing.

    But if you feel okay with it, fair enough. If you don’t mind that the ENTIRE WORLD (excepted again, the delicious democracies listed previously) is laughing…. at your expense, then again, good for you.

    However, I think many thais might have a different opinion.

    Hopefully you and that idiot from Bangkokpundit will be next because of your outrageous bias.

  6. 6 ThaiCrisis 1 July 2009 at 9:58 pm

    It’s funny to see your obsession with that word… “bias”.

    To think in a different way than you is… a “bias”. It’s hilarious.

    Anyway. If I’m an idiot, you’re definitely a clown. Because you fail to understand this basic phenomena : the more YOU speak about lese-majeste in outrageous terms (you would be happy apparently to fill charges against the whole world) the more YOU deface the monarchy and Thailand.

    Who was speaking about lese-majeste law before 2007 ? Nobody. We have had a few cases over the years… Nothing…

    Then, suddendly, people started to talk about it. Why ? Because we had the cop (and his obsession against J.Head and his 3 complaints), Da Torpedo, the people in the movie theater, the australian, and others etc.

    Are you able to draw a link between those facts ?

    You should.

    This is a strange decision to swallow. Normally a police officer would file a charge. But if a normal person file and the defendant is acquittal.
    Will the plaintiff, in turn, be convict of lese majeste or pressing false accusation?

    Let’s start a witch hunt! Jew! Jew!

    She states that she filed the complaint as a Thai who loves the monarchy and she says that the FCCT arranging for Jakrapob to speak and the selling of the DVD falls within the category of wanting to bring down the monarchy and destroy national security.

    99 years in jail huh?

    Nothing like a completely mindless comment to show everyone what a good Thai you are eh? Just in case the King is reading and knows who you are (or gives a fig who you are).

    Headless chickens running around and squawking – their brains and their mouths completely disconnected from each other.

    Like the BBC want to bring down the monarchy and destroy Thai national security. Like the BBC gives a rat’s ass abut Thailand. Like *anyone* gives a rats ass about Thailand really.

    Why would the BBC want to bring own the Thai monarchy when the Thai monarchy is doing such an excellent job of bringing itself down?

    And then there is Sammy’s friend. Where do you find these idiots TC?

    Just when I was beginning to see signs that the Thais are awakening from their slumber too… hey ho.

    Nothing like a bit of xenophobia and some hysteria about some crumbling old ruin in Cambodia to bring the Thai nationalists out from under their rocks all hissing and spitting venom…



    btw: don’t laugh, some months ago Bedwyr made a bizarre prediction to friends of Bedwyr. He said that we will all live to see a coalition between Thaksin and PAD. The yellows and the reds will combine to show a gentle shade of orange. Bizarre? Not for Thailand. Watch this space… you heard it here first.

    Sammy’s friend, if you believe that Thai Crisis and Bangkok Pundit have infringed the LM law, then surely it is your duty to lay a complaint with the police. If you do not have evidence that the LM law has actually been broken, but nevertheless think that ‘outrageous bias’ should be punished by some indirect application of the LM law, then you will understand one of the main concerns about the way LM is apparently being used these days– to suppress opinions which are opposed to those of the present government. You may not care about this, but be assured that many other nations outside Thailand take the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights very seriously, and blatant breaches of this can only harm Thailand in the long run.

    yr last post sums it well. in case of lese majesty any publicity is very bad publicity.

  11. 11 Vox Populi 2 July 2009 at 12:12 pm

    First entry on the ‘biased BBC’ link posted above: “King Arthur was not English.” And then a rant.

    Anyone who does even the most cursory of research knows that the most likely explanation of Arthur is that he was a Romano-British Celt. The ‘English’ didn’t exist at that point in time.

    That’s how much faith you should place in the ‘biased BBC site’, and by extension, how much attention you should give to the sad ranting of idiots like Sammy and his sockpuppet friend.

  12. 12 observer 2 July 2009 at 6:10 pm

    It´s time for the Thai “nobless” to leave the 14th century.

  13. 13 Tarrin 3 July 2009 at 6:31 am

    Sammy’s “bias” makes me laugh, a bit, if BBC is bias, then what about ASTVManager, the Nation, and other “respect” Thais news? they must be way beyond in their journalism….

  14. 14 Pricilla 3 July 2009 at 6:45 pm

    Appears like T. Visa has absorbed all the imbeciles it can so they are now overflowing into the blogs, guess it is time to dust off my monosyllabic dictionary again, at least until TC wises up and bans me.
