Abhisit‘s Dems MP, Malika Boonmetrakul, have come out to call Yingluck‘s government a dictator, citing the Thai police planned crack-down on “line App” for national security purpose. Abhisit have also called the government a dictator. A few years ago, at the height of Thailand‘s lese majeste witch hung, while Abhisit was the prime minister, the same Malika called on Thailand to bann Facebook and YouTube because they carried lese majeste content. Neutral Thai observer says Thailand is having a hard time functioning as a modern open society, with conflicting opinion and point of view, as demonstrated by Malika, who both supports freedom of expression and also tough censorship law under lese majeste. Globally, internet business based firms such as Google, have said that certain ruling on lese majeste, such as content infrastructure firm, can be held lible for content, will hurt Thailand’s push towards a digitized economy.
