Lese majeste and murder I

The Bangkok Post has a story on Nitiwadee Pucharoenyos who has been “freed on bail Tuesday evening after being sentenced to death and spending a night in jail for the murder of her husband and ex-national shooting team member Jakkrit Panichpatikum.” Her partner in that crime, “Santi Thongsem, the lawyer sentenced to death for hiring the gunman convicted of slaying … Jakkrit Panichpatikum in 2013, was freed on one million baht bail on Wednesday.”

Meanwhile, student activist Jatuphat Boonpattaraksa will be in court again on 22 December 2016 to hear a  police request to revoke his bail on charges of lese majeste. He’s accused of sharing a BBC Thai news article on the creepy and nasty King Vajiralongkorn.

PPT hardly needs any further commentary on this kind of neo-feudal bastardry.
