Prawet’s jail term ends

28 08 2018

The cases associated with the Stolen History 6 and especially with human rights lawyer Prawet Praphanukul have been unusual, even by the standards of this military dictatorship.

After having been charged with various “crimes,” including lese majeste, and fighting them in a brave and determined way, on 27 June 2018,  Prawet was found guilty of sedition and sentenced to 16 months in prison. Oddly and without explanation, his lese majeste charge disappeared.

The good news is that Prawet has now finished his sentence. On 26 August 2018, Prawet was released from Bangkok Remand Prison

The not so great news is that, following his release, Prawet said his case may not be over as military prosecutors are appealing the case.
