Thai woman insults monarchy, gets 43 years

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A woman in Thailand has been handed a record prison sentence of 43 years and six months for criticising the monarchy.

The former civil servant - identified only by her first name Anchan - was found guilty of 29 counts of violating the country's lèse-majesté laws, which make it illegal to defame, insult or threaten the monarchy.

Anchan was sentenced today (19 January) for sharing audio clips on Facebook and YouTube that were deemed critical of the monarchy.

The court initially announced her sentence as 87 years, but halved it because she pled guilty.

Unless you are on a right wing version of twitter in which case you get gang banged by an unchecked monopoly of tech giants.
