Legal Action Against Facebook And Twitter in Thailand

Thailand takes legal action against Facebook and Twitter on Thursday for ignoring their requests to take down some content despite a 15 days deadline.

It is the first such big legal against Facebook and Twitter, the major internet firms by the country.

The digital minister, Puttipong Punnakanta, said, ”The digital ministry filed legal complaints with cybercrime police after the two social media companies missed 15-day deadlines to comply fully with court-issued takedown orders from August 27”.

“No action was taken against Alphabet’s Google as originally suggested, as it took down all the YouTube videos specified in the order late on Wednesday”, Puttipong said.

“Unless the companies send their representatives to negotiate, police can bring criminal cases against them. But if they do, and acknowledge the wrongdoing, we can settle on fines.”

The government authorities have filed court orders requesting social media platforms to restrict or remove perceived royal insults and other illegal content like gambling or copyright violations.

Under the Act, ignoring a court order can result in a fine of up to 200,000 baht ($6,347), then 5,000 baht ($159) per day until the order is observed.
