When: December 10th, 2020

Where: Bangkok

Perpetrators: Unknown social media troll

Victims: Mr. Sanchai Engtrakul, nickname Peck Sanchai

What: Mr. Engtrakul, known more widely as Peck Sanchai, is husband to Thai actress Tanyares Engtrakul.

The Bangkokian socialite has filed an official complaint to start an investigation into an online slander and defamation case. The events started about 8 months ago according to Peck Sanchai.

The social media live broadcasts used profane language, accused him of cheating on his actress wife, and claimed that Peck Sanchai threatened their life. Mr. Sanchai claims he doesn’t know who the person is and denies all the claims.

Mr. Sanchai stated that because he lives a very public life with his young daughter, that he has concern for her safety and mental well-being. Therefore he took the case to a lawyer. Investigators are on the case.

My take: The social media slander and defamation laws are very well-known in Thailand. Most recently, farang were abuzz with the case of the American who slandered a hotel with bad reviews. But most often the law is used among Thais. Be careful who you insult online – you don’t know what kind of connections they have or how motivated they’d be to take you down.
