Terrible sentences for insults

In Thailand, you can be sentenced to decades in prison for insulting the king. Read about the latest case of Pongsak Sriboonpeng and others. Some earlier cases are Somyot PruksakasemsukAmpon Tangnoppakul and Joe Gordon. In Thailand it would probably not be possible to report freely about the Blue Diamond in the way done by Aftenposten (in Norwegian).

Thailand is not the only country with terrible sentences for insults. Remember Raif Badawi in Saudi Arabia.
