Chatwadee "Rose" Amornpat, for whom an arrest warrant has been issued for allegedly insulting the King, has announced that she has a British passport.
She posted a message on her Facebook wall that she was visiting France using her British passport.
She posted the message after Thai police said they would ask the Foreign Ministry to revoke her Thai passport to pressure the British government to repatriate her back to Thailand to face lese majeste charges.
“To all my friends who love democracy around the world: I’m on holiday now in Southern France. It’s such a beautiful part of France. I feel like I'm in fairy tale world. I’ll be going to Norway next week and will meet up with some Red Shirts there. My British passport sailed through with flying colours. I miss & love y’all my FC,” she posted a message on her Facebook wall.
