Media Freedom: 30 Thai news outlets urge military state to scrap control bill

Thirty media bodies in Thailand marked World Press Freedom day on Wednesday by calling on the military government to scrap legislation that seeks to tighten control of news reporting in the Southeast Asian country.

The call came days after a junta-appointed reform panel approved a bill to regulate the media that has drawn opposition from rights groups who say it is designed to boost state interference and curb independent reporting.

If adopted, the bill could establish a regulatory panel of 15 people, including two state officials and seven media representatives, to oversee all media platforms in Thailand, whether print, broadcast or online.

"The bill is essentially designed to facilitate political interference in the media and restrict pressfreedom," the Thai media organizations said in a joint statement.

The military government on Wednesday called off an event hosted by the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Thailand (FCCT) focusing on the as yet unsolved disappearance of a revolution plaque commemorating the end of absolute monarchy in 1932 - a subject on which the junta has largely evaded questions.

In a statement, the FCCT said, "(The club) stands by its colleagues in Thailand's domestic media as they struggle to maintain professional standards and editorial independence in particularly challenging times."

Thailand's military government, which took power in a bloodless 2014 coup, has attracted international criticism for curbing free speech and threatening press freedom.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said the government had no intention to silence media with the bill, but regulations were needed to push up the quality of the media.

The media is "an important part of the government's work", Prayuth told reporters at an event to mark World Press Freedom Day. "So I want the press to be balanced while working with the government for the people."

The government will now review the draft bill, before it goes to the National Legislative Assembly, a parliamentary body appointed by the military, for approval and passage into law, he added.

Thailand fell six places this year to rank 142 out of 180 countries on the World Press FreedomIndex of the Paris-based group, Reporters Without Borders.

En både tragisk och tråkig utveckling som känns lite overklig.

Ett land med en regering alltmer ur takt med tiden forsätter "ryta".

Attans....fel igen alltså ... :-) i inväntan på kvällens stora match mellan Man U och Celta Vigo ska jag träna på det. Det jag föraktar fanskapet för mest är att han köpte lokalkonkurrenten Man C, och till råga på allt sparkade Svennis som tränare. Det får bli ett hatinlägg på det temat :kort:

Hej

Ja tumskruvarna dras åt mer och mer just nu, undrar hur det här ska sluta, men ännu lyser forumets nyanmälda demokrati och människorättsförespråkare med sin frånvaro när det handlar om något negativt som kuppen, diktaturen och juntastyret har medfört.

I den här tråden har dom ju alla chanser i världen att visa sin avsky och ställningstagande mot det som både den demokratiska omvärlden, människorätts organisationerna och pressfrihetsorganisationer protesterar emot.

I dagens Bangkok Post beskriver en journalist hur det är att arbeta under juntans hårda förtryck och inskränkningar av pressfriheten, hon upplever att hennes liv står på spel och att dom lever under ett klimat av hot.

 

The walls are closing in on Thai journos

PARITTA WANGKIAT REPORTER

I've often been asked what it's like working as a journalist during periods of political upheaval in Thailand. My immediate answer is usually feeling as if my life is at stake. And secondly, I feel we live under a climate of intimidation.

REGIME THREATENS FACEBOOK WITH COMPUTER CRIME ACT

By Sasiwan Mokkhasen, Staff Reporter

May 12, 2017 12:54 pm

Inset, the message users get in Thailand when attempting to access content blocked by Facebook.

 

Bangkok — Government regulators have threatened legal action against Facebook if it does not block 131 items deemed insulting to the monarchy by Tuesday.

On the same day the Army Cyber Center claimed success in tackling offending online content, the telecommunications regulator on Thursday said Facebook representatives would be summoned to meet with the authorities if they don’t take action on another 131 URLs deemed defamatory by Tuesday, Matichon reported.

Takorn Tantasith, the top executive at the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, or NBTC, said Thai internet service providers have been cooperating by blocking 6,300 web pages per court order.

However, there are 600 items they have been unable to block because they are encrypted and reside on servers abroad.

Of the 600 pages, 309 items belong to Facebook. The rest belong to Google and YouTube, which had reportedly been made unavailable in Thailand by Thursday.

Facebook says it will take action on valid government requests supported by a court order. In recent years it has blocked a number of items from users in Thailand. According to its limited disclosure of such requests, it blocked 40 items in the second half of 2016, up from 10 items in the first half of the year.

The Thai ISP association told the commission last week it sent a request asking Facebook to comply with the court order on May 3. The California-based company has so far only removed 178 links, it said, without explanation for the remaining 131 URLs.

Should the social media giant refuse to comply with the law, the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society say it will press charges against the company under the Computer Crime Act.

According to commission guidelines, ISPs can either wait until a court order is issued to block content or do so at their own discretion without any court order or government request.

Upon seizing power in 2014, the military government made a priority of prosecuting royal defamation cases, saying they pose a threat to national security. Critics say it has used defense of the monarchy as a pretense to suppress dissent and criticism in public and online.
