European diplomats voice concern over Thai media’s presentation of news | Samui Times

Diplomats from eight European countries met with representatives of Thai media yesterday to discuss the presentation of personal details of crime victims and inappropriate images by the media.

The Italian, French, British, Danish, German, Spain, Czech and Portuguese ambassadors to Thailand submitted a letter addressed to the Thai Broadcast Journalists Association, the News Broadcasting Council of Thailand, the Thai Journalists Association and the National Press Council of Thailand to Mr. Thepchai Yong, president of the News Broadcasting Council.

The European diplomats urged the Thai press to be more responsible in presenting photographs of victims and inappropriate images, as well as unnecessary personal details.

Italian Ambassador Francesco Saverio Nisio indicated he wanted the Thai press to have more respect for the privacy of the victims and their families.

Mr. Thepchai indicated he will ask the various media for cooperation on this matter, which can be considered a step towards the reform of the Thai press.
