42286493 story Thailand Jails Dissident For What People Thought He Would Have Said 325 Posted by Soulskill on Friday January 18, 2013 @10:28AM from the see-no-evil-hear-no-evil-mime-no-evil dept. patiwat writes "A Thai court has convicted a man for censoring himself. In a 2010 anti-government rally, Yossawarit Chuklom said several people were against the dissolution of Abhisit Vejjajiva's government. He mentioned a few names, and then put his hand over his mouth and said he wasn't brave enough to continue. A court ruled that he would have mentioned King Bhumibol Adulyadej — thus earning him a conviction for insulting the King, who is constitutionally banned from any political role."
