Brickbat: Malevolent Monarchy
A Thai court has sentenced Anchan Preelert, 65, to 43 years in prison after she pleaded guilty to 29 counts of sharing and posting clips on YouTube and Facebook that were critical of the monarchy. This is the longest sentenced ever imposed by a court for violating the country’s lese majeste law. She originally faced up to 87 years in prison, but the court decided to be lenient with her because she acknowledged her crimes.
