SINGAPORE — Thailand’s criminal court today sentenced a Thai labor rights activist with long-standing ties to the garment industry to 10 years in prison for committing lèse-majesté, or causing offense to the monarchy.
The court found Somyot Prueksakasemsuk guilty on two counts of lèse-majesté for running articles allegedly defamatory of the Southeast Asian kingdom’s monarch in Voice of Taksin, a magazine he published. Somyot, who plead not guilty to the charges, could have been jailed for a maximum of 30 years.
