Nang Loeng Police today, March 24th, announced they are summoning and filing legal charges against a 40-year-old owner of a Twitter account that had allegedly tweeted threatening messages against the Thai prime minister’s twin daughters.
The case has proceeded following a defamation lawsuit filed by lawyer Apiwat Khanthong, vice-minister of the Office of the Prime Minister, on behalf of Thanya and Nittha Chan-O’Cha in September last year.
According to the complaint, the Twitter account titled ‘@jojoshamlet’ had posted a malicious and intimidating message, stating in Thai that “Young children, please remember that if you meet Prayut’s daughters anywhere, don’t forget to sexually harass them.” The lawyer had provided all evidence to the authorities and insisted to take serious legal charges against the account owner without any compromise.
As of this morning, the summons has been issued. The account owner was, according to the police statement, a 40-year-old Thai man whose residence was located in the Bang Phli district in the Samut Prakan Province. He is facing charges for posting malicious, intimidating, and threatening online messages against the twin daughters of the Prime Minister.
He is summoned to present himself at Nang Loeng police station on March 29th at 10:00 AM. If he does not show up, a second summons will be issued according to legal proceedings.
