Thailand's Government has initiated legal proceedings on Facebook and Twitter for not removing objectionable content from social media. The Ministry of Digital Economics and Society has filed a compound in the cyber crime police station. The same digital minister Putipong said, "Even after the court order, Facebook and Twitter did not listen to us, we decided to take legal action on them.
No such action has been taken against Google as its video platform had withdrawn objectionable things. At the same time, there is a stringent law to prevent computer crime in Thailand on the basis of which such complaints are disposed of and stringent penalties are also given if the company or the person is found to be a criminal. On Facebook and Twitter, the government says that companies are now left with two routes, either talk to us or face the case.
At the same time, if the companies accepted their error, they could end up by imposing fines. It may be recalled that even earlier in Thailand, people are talking about the monarchy through social media and questioning the government. On this, thailand's government talked about legal action. In the past few days, social media was saying very objectionable things about the Raj Parivar of Thailand. However, no definite decision has yet been taken.
