Airline’s April Fool’s tweet prompts royal insult report

AN April Fool’s tweet by staff at budget airline Thai Vietjet could lead to criminal charges after an activist lawyer filed a complaint with police alleging it had insulted Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralong­korn.Police will decide later whether to pursue a criminal case under strict lese majeste laws – which make defaming the monarchy punishable by up to 15 years in prison – against staff of the airline, an offshoot of Vietnam’s Vietjet Aviation JSC.Thai Vietjet’s official account tweeted on April 1 that the airline was launching a new international route between the Thai province of Nan and Munich in Germany, which stirred online anger and threats of boycotts among ultra-royalists.
