Guilty and condemned

17 11 2014

At Prachatai it is reported that a 26 year-old woman stands accused of posts at Facebook that infringe the draconian lese majeste law. The problem is that she seems to have no access to the page and claims it has been hijacked in “a ploy to cause her trouble by her boyfriend’s friend.”

Despite this, “Lt Col Burin Thongprapai, a staff of the military Judge Advocate General’s Department accused Jaruwan E. of defaming the King on her Facebook account and submitted three pieces of content posted under the public Facebook page with the name Jaruwan E. (full name and surname in Thai).”

Seemingly an ultra-royalist dolt, Burin proceeded to tell the media: “I think she did too much — defaming the revered institution of the Thai people. This kind of person should not be born Thai.”

Other posts say “she sells sex, … insult her female friend, whose boyfriend is a police[man].” She says she has not seen the alleged lese majeste posts.

Still the technological dinosaurs at the police and in the military are detaining her.

No charges have yet been laid.

Yet Burin has found her guilty.
