Juvenile lese majeste IV

23 11 2022

In a follow-up to a post yesterday, Thai Lawyers for Human Rights reports that on 22 November 2022, the Central Juvenile and Family Court delivered its judgement on Petch/Thanakorn’s  Article 112 case for an alleged offence when he was 17 years-old, in December 2020.

The court refused to allow observation of the case.

The court convicted Petch “and sentenced him to two years jail term. However, … pursuant to Section 142 of the Juvenile and Family Court and Procedure Act B.E. 2553, the Court ordered ‘Petch’ Thanakorn to enter a Juvenile Practice and Training Center instead of imprisonment sentence.”

He was “later granted bail with surety money amounting to 30,000 baht provided by ‘Ratsadornprasong Fund’, without any other bail conditions, as the case is on appeal.”

Petch faces another lese majeste case before the Nonthaburi Juvenile and Family Court. It will deliver its verdict on 22 December 2022.
