News agency boss claims former Reuters writer defamed him

By The Nation

 

The director of Isra News Agency, Prasong Lertrattanavisut, filed a complaint on Friday against former Reuters Thailand correspondent Andrew MacGregor Marshall, who allegedly defamed him in a Facebook post.

 

Isra Institute issued a second statement, signed by its executive Wimolpan Pitathawatchai, on Saturday saying Prasong had filed a complaint with the Technology Crime Suppression Division as Marshall had defamed him.

 

In the statement, the institute said the inquiring officer had told them that Marshall is already wanted by police. Marshall has faced several complaints for allegedly being provocative and causing division to Thai society, the statement said.

 

The institute insisted it would do everything to help get Prasong through the current situation, allegedly caused by some people who had been troubled by Isra’s investigative reports.

 

The institute also threatened to take legal action against anyone who did any harm to the integrity of the news agency, Prasong and its reporters.

 

Isra News Agency has played a vital role in reporting investigative reports against politicians and government officials. 

 
The development came after reports were recently circulated alleging sexual harassment against a young employee by a media executive.

Unfortunately the arm of 'justice' does not reach across borders, and no government in its right mind will extradite anyone, but especially a reporter, to a place notorious for its contempt of them.

Mr Marshall' FaceBook page is most enlightening, I did follow him at one point but thought it best to disassociate myself from him due to some of the pics and antics of you know who that he posted on there :wink:

I wouldn't put it past Cambodia to do so.

This county is filled with fragile little men. The more hair dye they use, the more fragile they are.

In Thailand, if you disagree with anyone on anything you could be accused of causing division, rather than just having an opposing point of view.

The CCA is here to protect the villains and it dos here but no where else.

 

Mr Wimolpan Pitathawatchai must be out of his tree as now the country knows what he has been up to

 

Wimolpan Pitathawatchai should get off his backside go to London and do a civil case against Andrew, but he will not as he knows he would loose big time.

 

A total waste of police time and state money as sweet FA will happen over this as UK and most other countries would laugh in the face of the country if they tried to extradite Andrew.

 

Rooster was correct babies in adults clothing.

 

I expect Andrew is PI<<<<< himself laughing

The aggrieved party in this case is "The director of Isra News Agency, Prasong Lertrattanavisut" who claims he was defamed by AMG. It is what this man has been up to that is causing the stir........

Isra Institute issued a second statement, signed by its executive Wimolpan Pitathawatchai, on Saturday saying Prasong had filed a complaint with the Technology Crime Suppression Division as Marshall had defamed him (Prasong)..
