The royalist and Chiranuch’s trial

9 09 2011

PPT hasn’t been posting on the trial of Prachatai’s Chiranuch Premchaiporn on computer crimes charges. The main reason for this is because Freedom Against Censorship Thailand’s C.J. Hinke has been providing a daily commentary:  Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8. The reason for this PPT post is to draw attention to the Day 9 account.

In that post, Hinke states that the sole accuser, who prompted the police to investigate was M.L. Panadda Disakul, a minor prince now said by the Bangkok Post to be governor of Chiang Mai. The prince did not file a charge and was not called as a witness.

Both the FACT and Post accounts are worth reading.
