Fiji Sun - - ASIA/CHINA NEWS -

Bangkok: Thai­land’s army chief Gen. Api­rat Kong­som­pong on Fri­day warned anti-gov­ern­ment ac­tivists to re­frain from mak­ing ver­bal abuse, which might pos­si­bly be deemed as a defama­tion to the royal house­hold.

The army chief said some stu­dent ac­tivists and oth­ers had ap­par­ently used some in­ap­pro­pri­ate words to ex­press their views in the pub­lic and on so­cial me­dia which, he said, might pos­si­bly in­sult the royal house­hold and be faced with the lese ma­jeste law, also known as Sec­tion 112.
