BANGKOK, 26th May 2018 (NNT) – Security agencies are monitoring false, distorted, and fabricated reports online in a bid to maintain national security. 

 

Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan has instructed responsible units to monitor online information and bring those who spread false information deemed a threat to national security to justice. 

 

Online fabrication and distortion is in violation of the Computer Related Crime Act, B.E. 2560, he said, adding that those found guilty will be subject to a fine and jail time. 

 

The deputy premier then pleaded with the public to check their sources before sharing and immediately alert a responsible agency should they come across fake news or information. 

 

Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha was the latest victim of online news fabrication following the recent petrol price hike. A fake report claimed that Gen Prayut was telling people to fill up their vehicles with water if they couldn’t afford gas.

No doubt TV is one of those closely monitored online resources.

Do not worry folks, if TV is being monitored, they will soon get p|+|sed off getting error 520 all the time, then  they will leave us alone.

  Okay, let's give them the error code. It isn't fun anymore.

This need not affect TV. According to the government poeple doing the monitoring can only speak basic Thai, and can hardly speak English at all. They might as well monitor the Swahili Times.
