The Absence of Solid Evidence Led to Wihdrawal of Les Majeste Charges

The lower court has vindicated a political dissident blamed by some security authorities for disregarding the lese majeste and PC wrongdoing regulations in 2016, saying the offended parties had no onlookers or strong proof to back their charges against the extremist.

In the claim, Harit Nahaton, 31, the cleared litigant, was blamed for slandering the high foundation in his visits with Nattharika Warathanyawit, 48, by means of Facebook Messenger, among January and April 2016.

For this reason, Ms Nattharika, who escaped the nation and is currently accepted to be living in the US, had purportedly utilized a Facebook account under the name Wararat Mengpramun to speak with Mr Harit, said a similar claim.

The piece of the claim against Ms Nattharika, named as the second respondent in similar case, has been suspended since the time she escaped the country. The offended parties are various security authorities who professed to have accessed the Facebook courier record of both Mr Harit and Ms Nattharika, said Winyat Chatmontri, a legal counselor addressing the charged, after Tuesday’s decision.
