Da Torpedo appeals lese majeste conviction

28 10 2009

Prachatai (28 October 2009: “Da Torpedo appeals lèse majesté case” and 27 October 2009: ทนาย ‘ดา ตอร์ปิโด’ ยื่นอุทธรณ์คดีหมิ่น) briefly reports that on 27 October Darunee Charnchoensilpakul’s lawyer Prawase Praphanukul lodged an “appeal at the Criminal Court, which in late August had sentenced her to 18 years in jail for lèse majesté.”

He was accompanied by activists and red shirts showing their support for the jailed Darunee. “Activist Chainarin Kulab-am said that his group would follow the case closely.” This is the group that has campaigned for the donation of books and magazines to the library of the Central Women’s Prison, where she is detained.

According to the report, those who wish to donate can contact mosquito_kae@hotmail.com.
