The military court on Tuesday sentenced the red-shirt host of a political podcast programme to 10 years in jail for defaming the King on his programme, but since the defendant pleaded guilty, the court reduced the sentence by half to five years in jail. The civilian criminal courts have normally sentenced defendants to between three and five years for each count of lèse majesté, but in this case the military court gave 10 years for a single count.
