Blocking Pornhub has nothing to do with ‘certain clip’, insists minister


The Digital Economy and Society Ministry announced on Tuesday that it has blocked all access to the pornography website, Pornhub, in line with law.

DES Minister Buddhipongse Punnakanta said the decision to block access to the website in Thailand was done after the court’s okay. 
Responding to queries from the press, he said he wasn’t worried that people’s hatred of this government will worsen from the closure of the website. He also added that the decision was not related to a clip featuring an important Thai personality that was posted on the website.

Meanwhile, protestors gathered at the Government Complex in Changwattana on Tuesday to voice opposition to the ministry' move to block Pornhub.
