British Rights Activist Andy Hall Sues Thai Authorities

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

British Rights Activist Andy Hall Sues Thai Authorities

You cant keep the truth from finidng its way to the people
and u cant keep an investigative journalist down.. :beer3:
BANGKOK — A British rights activist filed lawsuits on Wednesday against Thai authorities and a major Thai fruit producer, accusing them of unlawful prosecution over a 2014 criminal defamation case against him which had been thrown out of court.

Rights activist Andy Hall has been involved in high-profile legal battles since the publication in 2013 of a report he researched for Finnish group Finnwatch on the treatment of migrant workers by Natural Fruit Company, Thailand’s biggest producer of tinned pineapples.

Last year, he was found guilty of criminal defamation over the report and given a suspended three-year jail term in a case that alarmed rights groups who feared that it could set a precedent for the use of similar charges against others.

These hard-headed pesky farang need to learn the meaning of the phrase "Love it or leave it". It's the Thai way or the highway. That's why it's called "Thai-land".

All farang are invited to leave the country and are welcome to go live in one of the neighboring countries if they can't comprehend Thainess. The Thais have the Chinese now, so farang are not needed anymore.

It is now a few years ago that the Chief-Baboon-in-Uniform (Cha-Cha-Cha-whateverhisnameis) accused the opposition of using Black Magic to undermine his government.
