Note to Readers: Removal of An Article About Recent Lese Majeste Charge

Security officers today escorted Thanakorn Siripaiboon (in purple) to the martial court for an arraignment on his lese majeste charge.

From the Editors of Khaosod English.

We have removed a Dec. 14 article about a lese majeste (royal defamation) charge against a 27-year-old man named Thanakorn Siripaiboon, per instruction from Khaosod's editorial management, who feared that content in the article might lead to possible legal action.

The decision was made solely by the editorial management of Khaosod newspaper, which owns Khaosod English. We have not received any order from authorities to remove the article.

As a news agency based in Thailand, Khaosod English is obliged to comply with Thai laws. However, we strive to serve the public interest by presenting objective, accurate news reports.
