On 27 April, the Military Court arranged the dates for the trial of a squadron leader who has been charged with lèse majesté. The trial will start on 14 July, and will be held in secret, allowing only the defendant and his lawyers to attend.
The Royal Thai Air Force filed a complaint against the squadron leader on 4 Nov 2010, after a navy officer had made a complaint that he had posted offensive messages on his Facebook page.
The squadron leader turned himself in on 17 Nov 2010 and was released on bail on the same day.
The Military Court accepted the case on 8 Feb 2011. He was indicted by the Judge Advocate-General on 24 counts for 24 messages under Section 112 of the Criminal Code and Section 14 of the 2007 Computer Crimes Act.
