A woman from Krabi has been charged with the Computer Crimes Act after posting a video she made attacking the quality of Thai police officers to Facebook.
The 23 year old recorded the clip after a member of the Krabi police instructed her to move her car from a no parking zone.
In the video she claims that the police did not effectively perform their duties, but did not accuse them of any wrongdoing. The Krabi City Police Superintendent however believes that kind of slander can destroy the reputation of the police.
After posting the clip Sukanya Laiban was summoned to the police station where she explained that she had only parked in the no parking zone in order to droop something off and had no intention of leaving her car there, she felt that the officer who asked her to move was impolite, however she did apologise for the video clip.
The officer involved in the incident said that he felt the woman had already caused a serious tailback by her inconsiderate parking and although he asked her to move her car he did not issue her with a fine.
The Computer Crimes Act Section 14 states whoever commits the following acts shall be liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years or a fine not exceeding 100,000 baht or both.
(1) input into a computer system wholly or partially fake or false computer data that is likely to cause damage to another person or the public;
