Lese majeste charges mushrooming

27 11 2020

Thai PBS reports that:

Twelve core members and supporters of the Ratsadon group reported to Phya Thai police station today, to acknowledge charges of violating the state of emergency law with their protest march from the Victory Monument to Government House on October 21st.

The report lists just nine: Piyarat “Toto” Chongthep, Chonthicha Jaengraew, Suwanna Tarnlek, Chartchai Kaedam, Korakot Saengyen, Apisit Sapnapapant, Passaravalee Thanakitvibulphol, Dr. Tosaporn Sererak and Arnan Loomchan.

This list does not entirely match that at Thai Enquirer. and nor does it match that we reproduced a couple of days ago. Comparing the three lists, it may be that about 20 have been charged or been summoned to hear 112 charges.

In addition, Jatuphat Boonpattaraksa, has posted on Facebook that he too faces a charge. This is his second lese majeste charge. He was jailed on the first.
