BANGKOK — Thai police arrested and charged a woman for showing support for the US in front of the US Embassy in Bangkok on 4 July, Independence Day.
The police charged Chaowanat Musikabhumi, aka “Nong,” with defying the coup makers’ ban on political assemblies. She is now being detained at the Crime Suppressiong Division.
During an interrogation at the Thai Army Club, military officers told her that by holding a placard that said “Long Live USA Day,” she may have violated Article 112 of the Criminal Code (lèse majesté) if the placard is deemed a parody of “Long Live the King.” Read more here.
