Today I noticed that lèse majesté proceedings against Thai Prime Minister’s Office Minister Jakrapob Penkair seem to have ratcheted up a notch or two.

What most intrigued me about this news was the fresh complaint made by a Masters degree student at Mahamakut Buddhist University. I’m sure many New Mandala readers would be keen to learn more about this new angle of attack in the ongoing effort to protect “nation, religion, king”.

Previous coverage of Jakrapob and his current legal troubles is available here and here.

As an aside, but still very much on topic, this website is definitely worth a look. Is this now nation, religion, king…police, army? Or was it ever thus?
