Thailand: Man Bags 35 Years Jail Sentence Over Facebook Post

A military court in Thailand has sentenced a 34-year-old man to 35 years in prison for violating the country’s draconian lèse-majesté law, which criminalizes all perceived insult toward the nation’s monarchy.

This sentence is the harshest handed down to date of more than 100 cases of alleged royal defamation since the country’s military seized power in a 2014 coup.
