Bento sentenced on lese majeste

2 10 2013

The Bangkok Post reports that the Appeals Court has “reversed the lower court’s acquittal and handed down a five-year jail sentence on [Noppawan Tangudomsuk or Bento] for lese majeste.”

Noppawan was charged with lese majeste and violating the Computer Crime Act for allegedly posting “offensive” comments at Prachatai in October 2008. In 2011, she was acquitted by a lower court.

The prosecution appealed, and the Appeals Court “found the evidence shown by the prosecution was solid enough to find Noppawan guilty and sentenced her to five years in prison.”
