Mad dog minister

8 01 2021

Lese majeste repression is deepening, getting towards levels seen following the 2014 military coup. There are now at least 40 cases and perhaps 60 charges.

The Bangkok Post reports that, the regime “will summon nine suspects charged with posting content contravening the lese majeste law on social media last year for interrogation this month, says the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society (DES).”

Mad dog Buddhipongse as anti-democrat

Minister and anti-democrat Buddhipongse Punnakanta declared his ministry was full on lese majeste rabid in “pursuing prosecutions against those responsible.”

It was Buddhipongse’s ministry that “first alerted the Royal Thai Police’s Technology Crime Suppression Division (TCSD) in November, which began the process of making contact with the administrators of the social media sites to warn them they were hosting material violating Section 112 of the Criminal Code.”

The ministry demands that the sites “hand over details of those accounts responsible.”

The DES claims to “have identified nine individuals who are owners of … accounts” responsible for anti-monarchist content.

Buddhipongse stated: “They are not new faces and have been charged with similar offences many times before…”.

An anti-democrat and rabid royalist is working to stem the tide of anti-monarchism.
