FCCT on lese majeste

7 02 2013

At the front page of the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Thailand, and related to several earlier posts Debating and damning lese majeste, Chiranuch at FCCT, Debating lese majeste and responses to it, Warped world royalism and lese majeste“Somyos should be the last one” and FCCT failure on media freedom:

The FCCT’s Board has come under pressure to condemn the sentence given to Somyot Prukasaemsuk. While we were not unanimous in regards to commenting on particular legal cases, we see Article 112 of the Criminal Code, and the Computer Crimes Act, as constraints to freedom of expression, and oppose the application of these laws in a way that intimidates both local and foreign press to refrain from publishing dissenting political views. The Board is unanimous in this regard.
