Updated: Royalist Democrat Party still hot for lese majeste

22 08 2011

The Democrat Party continues to push for lese majeste restrictions, with one party spokesperson congratulating Information and Communication Technology Minister Group Captain Anudit Nakorntap for his statement saying enforcement of lese majeste and computer crimes laws would be increasingly stringent, and urging more snooping and reporting by the public:

The Democrat Party is urging the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to act quickly on closing down websites insulting the monarchy.

Deputy Democrat Spokesperson Ms. Jitpas Pirompakdi has expressed her gratitude towards ICT Minister Group Captain Anudith Nakornthap for taking a serious clampdown on any websites displaying content to insult the monarchy as there are quite a number of them at present.

According to her, disrespectful contents are widespread in social media, cyber space, as well as television and radio programs, and this has raised the question as to where webmasters receive the financial support from. She insisted that she had no intention to intervene in the work of the ICT and she would support their mission. She urged the public to report to authorities if they had seen such websites via email: yeswecan5555@gmail.com
