Bail revoked for lese majeste activist

The Criminal Court yesterday revoked bail for 20-year-old activist Tantawan Tuatulanon who was charged with lese majeste for her actions on March 17.

On that day she posted complaints on social media about how she was prevented from visiting a fast-food restaurant near a temple where Their Majesties the King and Queen were presiding over the royally sponsored funeral of the late Somdet Phra Wannarat, the former abbot.

The court said she could have avoided the area.

She was initially released on bail set at 100,000 baht, required to wear a tracking device and told not to defame the institution.
