Sasiwimol’s 56 year sentence

20 08 2015

The headline in Prachatai states that Sasiwimol was sentenced to 28 years for lese majeste, but, the fact is that she had a 56 year sentence reduced by half for the now almost mandatory guilty plea.

In this context, Prachatai has done its readers a great service in producing an account of Sasiwimol’s case by the Thai Lawyers for Human Rights.

We urge our readers to read and understand the pressure to plead guilty.
