Constitution Court rules Article 112 not unconstitutional
The Constitution Court ruled Wednesday that Article 112 of the Criminal Code that defines penalties against those who commit lese majesty does not violate the charter.
Constitution Court judges voted unanimously to uphold the constitutionality of the article.
Somyos Prueksakasemsuk, a defender in a lese majesty case, sough the ruling, alleging that Article 112 violated Articles 3, 29 and 45 of the Constitution.
But the court ruled that the article is aimed at keeping law and order and does not contradict with any article of the charter.
