BANGKOK (AFP) – A Thai man was sentenced to 20 years in prison yesterday for uploading audio clips that insulted royal family members, his lawyer said. Tara, whose last name was withheld, was convicted on six counts of lese majeste, according to his lawyer. He was detained in January 2015 for posting audio clips produced by ‘DJ Banpodj’, a podcast host known for fiery criticism of the monarchy.
