Thai Newsroom and Thai PBS show that it takes considerable effort to get reporting of critically important news when it has anything to do with Kibosh and his family of Munsters.

It took self-bail revocation, a (limited) hunger strike, and student pressure to get them to take notice.

The Bangkok Post seems to still be avoiding the obvious:

The two stories mentioned above relate to large banners that were hung at Chulalongkorn University and Thammasat University’s Tha Prachan campus. The banners pushed:

“students to pay attention to politics, to not bow to unjust rules and to support the persistent call for freedom for the 21 political detainees, nine of whom have been prosecuted under the draconic lese majeste law, better known as Section 112 of the Criminal Code, whilst the others have been slapped with sedition charges.

The call was supported by the United Front of Thammasat & Demonstration and Thai Lawyers For Human Rights.

Update: Better late than never – the Bangkok Post has reported this story.
