KwikChex Comment: Andy Hall Thai defamation case

BBCNewsCredits: BBC News

A British labour activist, Andy Hall has been charged with criminal defamation in Thailand. The use of criminal laws to attempt to silence and punish those involved in publishing matters of public interest is open to extreme abuse.

KwikChex calls on the Thai authorities to at least suspend the case - and to initially carry out an investigation into the information published by Andy Hall.
