The Twitter hashtag #saveทรายเจริญปุระ (Save Sai Charoenpura) became a top trending topic on Thursday after actress Intira “Sai” Charoenpura reportedly received a summons over lese-majeste and sedition charges.

On Wednesday, the popular pro-democracy actress posted on her Facebook page that she had received a summons from Bang Khen Police Station in Bangkok.

According to the summons, Intira was charged with violating Sections 112 and 116 of the law along with protest leader Arnon Nampa and others. However, the summons did not clarify on which date or during which demonstration she had violated the laws.

Intira was scheduled to visit the station on December 21 to hear the charges.

Intira has also become well known for her political views and moves. During a series of demonstrations, she supported food for protestors free of charge.
