Thammakaset 2 Thailand Agriculture & livestock Company Response


In October 2018, Thammakaset filed a criminal defamation complaint with the Criminal Court in Bangkok for alleged defamation and libel. They demanded she publishes an apology to the company in four local newspapers and on her Twitter account every day for a minimum of 30 days. The suit arises from three posts on Twitter about a campaign video produced by Fortify Rights, which denounced labour conditions at the Thammakaset factory. After the preliminary hearing, in March 2019, the Criminal Court decided to proceed with the defamation case. Further, the Court decided to combine the case with Mr. Nan Win’s case. The Court also issued a detention warrant against Sutharee. Ms. Sutharee paid a 50,000 THB (USD 1,600) to be granted bail. Witness examination hearings were held in February 2020. On June 8, 2020, the Criminal Court in Bangkok found Ms. Sutharee not guilty of defamation and dismissed the case against her.
