Eight critics of Thai govt lose their Facebook pages


Eight social media pages were ordered closed by a court on Wednesday because their content allegedly violates the Computer Crime Act.

The Digital Economy and Society Ministry announced that the Facebook pages of Pavin Chachavalpongpun, Andrew MacGregor Marshall, Royalist Marketplace, Suda Rangkupan, ป้าหนิง DK, Aum Neko, KTUK and Pixel HELPER will be removed.

These pages carried politics-related content and were critical of the Thai government.

The Facebook page of exiled academic Somsak Jeamteerasakul managed to escape the closure order.
