Police Commissioner General Somyos Pumphanmuang yesterday invoked the 2007 Printing Act to ban the import and distribution of the "A Kingdom in Crisis" book in Thailand.

The book, written by David Eimer, was deemed as offensive to the monarchy, detrimental to national security and the good morality of the people, the ban order said.
Anyone who breaches the ban faces up to three years in jail and/or a fine of Bt60,000.
