Thai royal insult inmates ‘pariahs’ in prison – AFP, August 23, 2012
…Amnesty views people incarcerated solely under the lese majeste law — which carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in jail on each count — as prisoners of conscience.
“If that is the only law under which they have been in prison they should be released. Treatment in prison, that’s a conversation we shouldn’t even be having,” said Zawacki.
Sukanya Pruksakasemsuk, whose husband Somyot is facing charges over two articles published in his now-defunct Red Shirt magazines, said the law itself was futile.
“You can physically put them in prison, but you cannot jail their thoughts,” she told a press conference last month.
