Thailand’s Computer Crimes – CBC The World this Weekend

BANGKOK, Thailand – Thai netizens are outraged as amendments to the Computer Crime Act came into effect in 2017. It’s meant to take Thailand’s draconian sedition and royal defamation laws online.

The current regime has made it a far-reaching act since its inception 10 years ago — targeting its critics online anywhere in the world. Thai civil society groups complain that the revised law has lead to censorship.

This story aired on CBC The World this Weekend Saturday, Oct, 28, 2017.
