Frenchman accused of lese majeste in Thailand

A pro-royalist group in Bangkok, Thailand, filed a lese majeste case against a well known French critic of the Thai monarchy yesterday, reviews SiamRath.
The Centre for People Protecting the Thai Monarchy alleges that Yan Marchal posted a 41-second-long clip on social media of him and a few Thais singing a music containing lyrics that the group says are defamatory of the Thai royal family, violating Section 112 of Thailand’s Criminal Code.
The head of the group filed a grievance against 50 yr old Marchal at the Central Investigation Police Reporting Centre on Phahoholyothin Road in Chatuchak district at 11am yesterday.
“My first 112 case (that I’m aware of). I made it! Thanks Anon,” Marchal introduced to his 32,000 followers on Facebook.
Even although Ingredients isn’t in Thailand, he’d managed to search out some Thai people to make the video with who, “do not love the nation,” reviews SiamRath.
SiamRath warned the public towards even sharing Marchal’s content material on social media, stating that The Centre for People Protecting the Thai Monarchy will report him and the Technology Crime Suppression Division will examine.
Yan Marchal used to stay in Thailand for 18 years, working as a pc sport programmer. However, his on-line anti-government and anti-monarchy espousals landed him in scorching water and noticed him primarily deported from the dominion more than two years in the past.
In November 2021, Marchal mentioned authorities have been expelling him from Bangkok to Paris and that he would not be allowed to reenter the nation. He said…
“I have been advised to fly out quite than to reveal myself to judicial danger while appealing.”
Yan mentioned that immigration police called him a “threat to nationwide security.”
In 2020, Marchal was virtually booted out of Thailand for several posts he made on Facebook relating to the monarchy and the antigovernmental protests happening on the time..
