Thailand Lèse-Majesté Law | The New ASIA OBSERVER

Ji Ungpakorn, a prominent academic facing 15 years in prison for allegedly insulting Thailand's monarchy fled to England, saying Monday he does not believe he will receive a fair trial
Ji Ungpakorn, a prominent activist and political scientist at Bangkok's Chulalongkorn University, said police have asked to question him over a book he wrote about Thailand's 2006 military coup. His case is the latest sign of ideological struggle over the role of the monarchy, a subject that was once taboo. There has been a recent spate of complaints and prosecutions for lese majeste - as the charge is called - and increased censorship of Web sites allegedly critical of the institution. Those who have faced lese majeste complaints in the year include a fledgling Australian novelist, a BBC reporter, a prominent Buddhist intellectual and an activist who refused to stand up during the traditional playing of the Royal Anthem before a movie. Ji said at a news conference that the lese majeste law, which mandates a jail term of three to 15 years for defaming the king, the queen or the heir to the throne, « restricts freedom of speech and expression and does not allow for public accountability and transparency of the institution of the monarchy. » He charged that it is used « as a tool by the military, and other authoritarian elites, in order to protect their own interests. » He claimed he was being targeted for political reasons because he criticized the military and its coup. But Ji, who is the son of one of the most respected civil servants in modern Thailand, the late Central Bank Governor Puey Ungpakorn, called for « an international and national political campaign to defend democratic rights in Thailand and for the abolition of the Lese Majeste law. »
