Khon Kaen Court on Thursday heard the first group of prosecution witnesses in the lese majeste case against student activist Jatupat Boonpatraraksa, better known as Pai Dao Din.

It was the first hearing in the case after nine months of pre-trial detention of the accused.

The hearing was confidential and the court prohibited dissemination of the testimonies, according to the Thai Lawyers for Human Rights (TLHR).

Only the parents of the defendant and lawyers, besides Pai were allowed in the courtroom, the TLHR wrote on its website.

Pai has been accused of violating Section 112, the lese majeste law, as well as committing a computer crime after he had posted a BBC article deemed insulting to the monarchy in December.

Some 10 people were present around the court on Thursday to show support for the activist, TLHR said.
