Updated: Accent of women on lese majeste and Somyos

No 112Update: We fixed the link to the podcast.

Accent of Women is a program from a satellite, community radio station in Australia. It has posted a podcast that looks at the use of Article 112 used “to suppress and prevent opposition and political action.” It states that “Somyos Prueksakasemsuk is the best known prisoner charged under this law, and he was sentenced on 23 January 23 to 11 years imprisonment.” In examining the issue, Accent of Women interviews Sukunya Prueksakasemsuk and Thai activist-in-exile in Finland, Junya Yimprasert. Sukunya speaks first, about her husband’s case and the campaign for his release. Junya speaks initially about her exile and contact with Somyos and then more broadly about lese majeste law and its operations. Both speak in English.
