30 years in jail for insulting Thai king
There are stiff penalties in Thailand for insulting the king, queen, heirs or regents. For each offense a person can receive a maximum sentence of fifteen years.
The court in Bangkok ruled that the 48-year-old Pongsak Sriboonpeng in six cases was guilty of insulting the monarchy. For each charge, he was sentenced to ten years, but because he pleaded guilty, his sentence was halved.
“This breaks a record,” said his lawyer. Because in Thailand there is a state of siege Sriboonpeng can not appeal against the verdict of the military court.
Since the military coup in May 2014 in the country, the number of convictions for lèse majesté has increased considerably. Before the coup took place there were two court cases, now there are at least 56, according to a local human rights organization.
In April, was a businessman was convicteed to 25 years in prison for insulting the monarchy. This week a man with mental problems was sentenced to five years in prison, because he had damaged a portrait of the king and the queen.
Critics think the draconic punishments are for silencing opponents of the monarchy and the military regime.
