Thai politician facing jail for lambasting junta 'sexism'

A Thai opposition politician is facing up to five years in jail after he was charged on Thursday for criticising a senior general for making “sexist” remarks about ousted premier Yingluck Shinawatra. Watana Muangsook, a prominent figure in the Pheu Thai party that was toppled by the 2014 army takeover, is being prosecuted under the country’s computer crimes law, which bans spreading false information digitally. The charge relates to a Facebook post Watana wrote attacking the Thai junta’s deputy leader for saying that soldiers continued to photograph Yingluck, two years after she was toppled from office, because she is good looking.
