Wipas Raksakulthai, 37, was charged with publicising and posting inappropriate video clips, photographs, sound recordings, and articles as well as messages, which are deemed as inciting unrest, a national threat and insulting the royal family, DSI director-general Tharit Pengdit said on Friday.

DSI officials seized Mr Wipas’s computer, a modem, communication equipment and cell phones.

The Bangkok-based Criminal Court approved a police request for a further 12-day detention on Friday.

Mr Wipas is a Rayong businessman who supports the anti-government Red Shirt’s political ideology as well as having joined the protest, the DSI chief said.

Following an unusual rise of cases concerning lese majeste, or insulting the institution of the monarchy on websites, the DSI warned persons who find inappropriate messages and pictures to cease forwarding them to other persons. Anyone found violating the 2007 Computer Act may face up to 15 years in prison.

Mr Wipas told police that he supports the Red Shirts, but denied posting any content or photos insulting the monarchy on the website, according to Pol Col Narat Savetanan, DSI deputy director-general.

The Rayong businessman said that he wanted his lawyer present during the investigation. (TNA)
