Activist charged with mocking Prayuth’s song


BANGKOK: A Thai activist who made fun of one of junta leader Prayuth Chan-ocha's ballads on Facebook was charged with cyber crime for publishing material critical of the government.

Veera Somkwamkid was charged with “importing false computer data” for a post saying most Thais lacked confidence in the military government, which took power in a 2014 coup in the name of ending more than a decade of political unrest.
