Committee to Protect Journalists article
This article from the Committee to Protect Journalists is a good summary of our current situation:
Local media reported that Somyot was charged on Monday with two offenses of lese majeste for two separate articles deemed critical of the royal family published in his now-defunct Voice of Taksin magazine. If the journalist is found guilty of both charges, he will face a possible 30 years in prison. Lese majeste charges in Thailand carry up to 15-year jail terms and have been abused for political purposes during the country’s protracted political conflict.
