Updated: Is this the Yingluck government’s first lese majeste case?

26 01 2012

Reported at the Bangkok Post (we will have a further post on this story):

… a cameraman working for the satellite-based Asia Update TV channel is being investigated for alleged lese majeste. Department of Special Investigation deputy chief Yanpol Yangyuen said evidence is being collected against a suspect with a Facebook login name of Tanan Maneewong.

As PPT has noted before, each of the recent lese majeste cases that has been attributed to the Yingluck Shinawatra government has been one that began earlier. While further details are necessary, this case may well be the first that originates and is processed under the Yingluck government.

Update: We included a link to Asia Update TV above. As might be expected in a story like this, it is a red shirt outlet.
