And a new one ! The fourth !
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. (Nation)
Welcome to Thailand.
