Nidhi Eowsriwong on lesè majesté, freedom of speech, Giles Ungpakorn

12 02 2009

In an earlier post, PPT commented on Kamnoon Sidhisamarn, a senior Manager columnist and appointed senator, attacking those who had signed a petition circulated by Giles Ungpakorn before his flight. Kamnoon mentioned academics associated with Midnight University.

Now Nidhi Eowsriwong from Midnight University has responded, asserting that those who supported the petition were also supporting the principle of freedom of speech.

The article refers to “climate of fear” and to “dozens of cases are being prosecuted” and the fact that the “Thai media has kept silent.”
