Sarawut back in court

Sarawut (surname withheld) is a 32 year old optometrist from Chiang Rai who has been charged with lese majeste before a military court. He is accused of defaming Prince Vajiralongkorn, now king. He was also charged under the 2007 Computer Crimes Act.

In a report at Prachatai, when Sarawut appeared before a military court on 7 February 2017, he is said to have vowed to prove his innocence. It seems he has been granted bail.

His next appearance before the court on 11 April 2017.
