Because the King of Thailand is a stooge:

Here is the paragraph - courtesy of Alina's investigations - that managed to get an Australian self-published author six years in prison:

"From King Rama to the Crown Prince, the nobility was renowned for their romantic entanglements and intrigues. The Crown Prince had many wives "major and minor", with a coterie of concubines for his entertainment. One of his recent wives was exiled with her entire family, including a child they conceived together, for an undisclosed indiscretion. He subsequently remarried with another woman and fathered another child. It was rumored that if the prince fell in love with one of his minor wives, and she betrayed him, she and her family would disappear with her name, familial lineage and all vestiges of their existence expunged forever."

Now, your job is to re-post this at your blog. This is a human rights violation and the international community of writers should speak up about this.
