Kan Thoop’s police summons postponed to 11 Feb

First year Thammasat University student Kan Thoop, her cyber nickname, who was summoned by police for her internet posts allegedly offensive to the monarchy, has postponed the date for her to report to police to February as she has exams to do this month.

Police at Bang Khen Police Station issued her a summons late last year for interrogation about Facebook posts she made in April 2010 during the height of red-shirt protests in Bangkok.  She asked the police to postpone the reporting twice due to the floods. 

According to Matichon, an investigator at the police station said that as complaints had been made against her, she was summoned for interrogation, when she would be informed of the charges.  However, as the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology did not confirm that the accused had really posted the comments, the investigating team at the police station decided not to prosecute her.  And considering the fact that when the alleged offenses were committed, the accused was only a minor, less than 18 years old, and ‘should not have harbored a radical political idea’, the police investigators assumed that ‘someone else had posted the comments under the name Kan Thoop’.

The investigating team decided to drop the case more than two months ago, and forwarded the decision to the Metropolitan Police Command.  However, a deputy commander ordered them to have her interrogated, and the team had to summon her, said the police officer, adding that she could ask to postpone the meeting if necessary.

Yingluk.... her government resurrected the charges. PT apparently stands for Pusillanimous Timidity. And that will be their epitaph. What a contrast with the redshirted, redblooded Thai people who elected them.

I remain unsure if you are

I remain unsure if you are correct JFL. I know that Yingluck and her govt have been hopeless on LM, but it remains unclear if the current govt is pursuing and processing cases or if these remain old cases from Abhisit's time still being processed and the PT govt is too gutless to put a hold on anything to do with LM. Oc course, the outcome for the victim is the same.

JFL -the red shirts are run

JFL -the red shirts are run by Peau Thai - PT MPs literally run the whole thing and they report directly to Thaksin! Go to a UDD rally - they usually have a Kim Jong Ill-style picture of Thaksin right on the stage, as do their radio stations. The UDD leaders also consort with foreign corporate-financiers for backing and favors. This is all on record in the link below including a letter written by UDD leaders themselves bragging about their April trip to Washington.

The UDD leadership makes a cruel mockery out of the human dignity of the poor, ignorant people they dupe into following their movement. People like you JFL are shameless collaborators - truly disgusting how you daily give encouragement and support for the human exploitation of Thaksin, his political machine and his Wall Street backers.

And PT is pursuing these LM cases in a coordinated effort with Western media to undermine Thailand's institutions, notice how all the Western media outlets don't ever mention Thaksin, Yingluck or PT when covering LM. More fake humanitarians peddling corporate fascism with a sugar coating of "human rights" on top.

Kan Thoop was a minor at the

Kan Thoop was a minor at the time of her alleged actions. A child. She has been chased and harassed mostly by adults who see her as an enemy to them, the state and the monarchy. There's nothing mysterious or hidden in this nasty action. A young - and seemingly brave - girl is being chased down by representatives of "Thailand's [rotten] institutions."
