Lese Majesty Notification
( Last edit 2009-04-30 )
Thailand has been a Kingdom for more than seven hundreds years. All along, the Constitutions of Thailand and Thais recognize the important roles of the Monarchy to the country and the people up to this day. The Monarchy as the highest establishment and the center of the morale, unites Thai people of all races and religions in Thailand, through his merits and virtue. The blue colour on the Thai national flag signifies the Monarchy as one of the three most important national respected institutions.
Moreover, the present King, His Majesty the King Bhumipol, through his longest reign of six decades, his arduous devotion and his Royal family's charity works for the people, have proven for Thais that Thai Royal family is one of the democratic, the best, and the most charming as well as the most revered, Thailand ever have.
Thais consider that the Monarchy has the highest priority and is the most important institute to the national security. Therefore, the Monarchy is to be protected by all institutions as well as the lay people from explicit harms or insidious undermining acts.
In Thailand, it is against the Consitution, the criminal laws, the cultures and the social norms for anybody to commit a lese Majesty. Therefore, it is illegal, a criminal offense, as well as inappropriate to say or express directly or indirectly any malicious messages or act disrespectfully toward the Monarchy and the Royal family.
