Straits Times: Thai minister says clampdown on social media content won’t stop as Facebook plans to fight order

Straits Times: Thai minister says clampdown on social media content won’t stop as Facebook plans to fight order. “Thailand’s digital minister vowed not to relent on Wednesday (Aug 26) in a crackdown on social media content deemed illegal. It was also unlikely that Facebook would follow through on plans to challenge an order to block access to a group critical of the Thai monarchy, the minister said. The ‘Royalist Marketplace’ group, which had more than one million members, was blocked within Thailand late on Monday after the Digital Ministry threatened legal action against Facebook under the country’s Computer Crime Act.”
