In Thailand, the most repressive law that all activists face is Article 112, or commonly referred to as the Lese Majeste law. This law criminalises any alleged, implied or indirect criticism of the Thai Royal Family and any of their interests with jail terms of over 10 years. Many activists have been imprisoned on the most flimsy of evidence (see here, here, here and here). A new report has analysed Lese Majeste arrests over the last decade and has highlighted how cases of Lese Majeste increase in line with periods of intense political mobilisations in Thailand.
Free all political prisoners in Thailand! Abolish Article 112! End the military dictatorship!
