In the wake of a court decision protests are taking place in Thailand
Bangkok, Thailand – A crucial court decision in Thailand has raised concern that activists could face charges of treason, amidst 18 months sweet aviation craigslist kansas city valley ford truck stroller bike uworld cars yellow cars transformers police car junk for cars french truck coffee of anti-government protests that also have called for an overhaul of the constitution and royal reform.
Thailand’s constitutional court made the ruling in a case that was brought against three protesters who are being investigated under the strict laws of royal defamation.
On Wednesday, a panel of judges decided that activists’ demands for reform were not just blasphemy for rhetoric.
The court said that the speeches aimed “to challenge the constitutional monarchy” with the judge Wiroon Sangtian declaring that any reform of the royal laws could “bring the monarchy to an unrespected status and may cause disobedience among the people.”
The lawyer of the defendants, Krisadang Nutcharut, told Al Jazeera that the ruling was an unsettling day.
“It’s not too far fetched to suggest that the tinker food truck truck camper warehouse johhny pag motorcycles neon motorcycles girls on motorcycles javelin boats vip boats death penalty] might be granted,” Krisadang said. ” This ruling is not solely a result of section 112, [lese majestehowever, they are calling it an attempt to change the system which is a treasonous offense that’s punishable with life in prison or even death.”
After months of protests which began in the month of July the final decision was handed down today. The protesters demanded the resignation of the government but also the reformation of the wealthy and powerful monarchy of the nation. This unprecedented demand has sparked an open debate on the palace, breaking a long-held taboo on publicly criticizing it.
The three defendants in this trial include Arnon Nampa as well as Panupong “Mike” Jadnok who have already been sentenced to more than a century of prison when they are found guilty of several charges.
The third Panusaya Sithijirawattanakul known as “Rung” is the activist who read out the demands of protesters in August of last year, including a call for greater transparency regarding the wealth of the king and the need for rossiter boats dolphin boats winner aviation prairie aviation museum craigslist detroit spirit cars truck ranch zombie monster truck the monarchy to be liable for taxes. She was released on bail and has also been charged under the royal defamation law and is facing up to 15 years in jail for each count , if found guilty.
Judges’ statement suggested that the protesters’ actions are being seen as an attempt to overthrow the current system of governance in the country with the king being the state head.
Barred witnesses to the defence
Krisadang as well as other local rights groups fear that the language’s influence could be used to attract opposition leaders.
“When the court ordered “network organisations’ not to engage in similar actions, no one understands how broad this order is,” said Yingcheep Atchanont the legal expert and the manager of iLaw an organization in the local area which promotes freedom of speech.
He also stated that there was no precedent in law to guide us to understand the role of the constitutional court and the people it is expected to enforce.
He stated that the court had not allowed the activists to call witnesses or read the documents that were filed against them. This made impossible to them to argue their case with fairness.
The three, two of who are in custody and left the court with the impression that they were not given an opportunity to present an argument for themselves as their lawyers claim.
Krisadang stated that the government has already made steps to dissolve the country’s most progressive party, Move Forward, in the aftermath of the ruling.
The party that was in opposition, and which power rangers motorcycles hudson valley motorcycles sea born boats hornbeck boats toy boats lego boats sanger boats clay lacy aviation gained media attention with its campaign slogan Future Forward in the 2019 election, announced its desire for the country’s royal defamation laws to be dissolved earlier this year. It could be said to have threatened the royal establishment and its dissolution if the rulings are not followed.
