Fake internet photo libels Bangkok Post

Fake internet photo libels Bangkok Post

A malicious internet post defaming the high institution and attempting to libel the <i>Bangkok Post</i> appeared Wednesday on the internet.

A Twitter user posted a fake "screen capture" alleging to be news originating from the Bangkok Post.

Even a cursory examination would reveal to any reader that the posting is fake, and does not resemble in any manner the style of "Most Recent" news on the Bangkok Post website.

The Bangkok Post reported the image to Thung Mahamek district police as soon as it came to the newspaper's attention. The newspaper filed an official complaint.

Bangkok Post management and staff will cooperate fully with all authorities in attempting to identify all those persons behind this malicious internet post and in helping to bring the criminal or criminals to justice.
