Re: If the photo is so offensive you can't show us then here it would fail obscenity laws
The Thai authorities don't show the "offensive" material (even in evidence?) because that would also be insulting.
Hardly any point in supressing something and then letting papers print it.
Sounds also that when faced with threat of a decade or more in jail, the perpetrator 'confesses' to get a reduced sentence. So no awkward appeals - how tidy.
