(Thai Press Reports Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge) Section: General News
– Thailand’s Ministry of Information and Communication Technology will
examine the content of ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s
official website to be launched Wednesday (July 25) and will order the
website to shut down if any content affects national security.

Speaking about the forthcoming launch of the Thaksin website, Information and Communication Technology Minister
Sitthichai Pookaiyaudom said everyone is entitled to open a website,
but he nonetheless ordered ICT officials to monitor the content
publicised on the website.

If the website contains content deemed detrimental to national
security, the ministry will shut down the website and take legal action
against the website owner.

The ICT ministry earlier blocked pro-Thaksin websites displaying video
and sound clips of the ousted prime minister for security reasons prior
to the Constitution Tribunal delivering its May 30 verdicts on the
dissolution of political parties. The ban was lifted later.
