Juvenile 112 indictment

31 10 2021

It is reported that public prosecutors have decided to indict Noppasin Treelayapewat, a 16 year-old, with lese majeste for participating in a “fashion show” that poked fun at royals “during a pro-democracy protest on Silom Road on 29 October 2020.”

The so-called Ratsadorn Catwalk fashion show “took place after it was reported that the Ministry of Commerce received a 13-million baht budget for the overseas exhibition of new products by Sirivannavari brand, a fashion label owned by the King’s younger daughter, Princess Sirivannavari.” It also coincided with the launch of Sirivannavari’s newest collection, “held at the nearby Mandarin Oriental Hotel.”

Sirivannavari has been hoovering up taxpayer funds for her pet projects for years.

The rally saw no speeches, but “protesters participated in the fashion show, performed, and exhibit artwork to support monarchy reform.”

Noppasin is “alleged to have mocked the King by wearing a black crop top with the message ‘My father’s name is Mana, not Vajiralongkorn’ written on his back.” That led to a 112 “complaint was filed against him by Waritsanun Sribawornthanakit.”

That royalist “also filed a complaint against Jatuporn Sae-Ung, 23, for participating in the same protest,” claiming that Jatuporn “ridiculed the Queen by wearing a pink Thai traditional dress to the fashion show and walking along a red carpet under an umbrella held by another protester.”

Jatuporn was already indicted on 15 July 2021, charged under Article 112. She is on bail, with the court setting “conditions that she must not repeat her offences, participate in activities that damage the monarchy, or leave the country.”

As the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights (UNHCR) says it is “deeply troubled” and expresses “alarm” and “dismay,” the lese majeste total tops 35, including a child, and the number grows by the day.

The regime will ignore the UN and the slithering foreign minister will again explain that the is embedded in “Thai” DNA.

The child was one of “[t]wo students facing charges under the lèse majesté law for participating in a ‘fashion show’ during a pro-democracy protest on Silom Road…”. Apparently this lampooned the monarchy, thereby insulting and defaming it:

Jatuporn Sae-Ung, 23, and Noppasin (last name withheld), 16, went to Yannawa Police Station to hear the charges after they were accused of insulting the Queen by wearing Thai traditional dress, a gesture seen as mockery of the royal family, at a “fashion show” during the protest on Silom Road on 29 October 2020.

Of course, having the convicted drug trafficker, thug, serial liar, fraudster, fake degree holder, nepotist, misogynist, “dark influence,” and the remarkably unusually wealthy Thammanat Prompao as a minister is just perfect. Dressing up is the major problem.
