Norawase’s lese majeste case update

10 11 2011

Recent Kasetsart University graduate Norawase Yospiyasathien was arrested and detained by police on 5 August 2011 for alleged lese majeste and infractions of the computer crimes laws.

At Prachatai it is reported that the Office of the Attorney General has received the case report from the police and has established a committee to consider it.

Norawase claims his comments were personal and private and not offensive, but that his email was hacked and his emails published through Facebook without his consent.

No decision is expected from the committee on whether to pursue the case until December.
