Thai authorities to seek Facebook’s help to crack down on lèse majesté

The Thai authorities have revealed that they have invited representatives of Facebook in Thailand to discuss measures to prevent content defaming the Thai King on Facebook and how to have them prosecuted.
 
Thakorn Tantasith, Secretary-General of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), told reporters on Sunday that NBTC has invited the Thailand representatives of the social network company to a talk on Monday.
 
Thakorn said he wants Facebook head office to respect Thailand’s Article 112, or the lèse majesté law, and to cooperate with the Thai police in identifying and prosecuting Facebook users who violate the law.
