    Thailand: A court sentenced two top police officers embroiled in a corruption scandal to six years in prison yesterday on charges of insulting the monarchy and running a gambling den.

    Mr Chayapan is distantly related to the royal family through the crown prince’s ex-wife.

    US man jailed for defaming royals

    Thailand: A Bangkok court sentenced US citizen Joe Gordon (above) to two-and-a-half years in prison today for defaming the country’s royal family by translating excerpts of a locally banned biography of the king and posting them online.

    Judge Tawan Rodcharoen said the punishment, initially set at five years, was reduced because Mr Gordon pleaded guilty in October. Defence lawyer Arnon Nampa said he would not appeal but would apply for a royal pardon.
