Ministry seeks cooperation from the people to immediately report inappropriate contents insulting the Monarch

The Ministry of Digital Economy and Society today sought cooperation from the people to report the ministry at e-mail 1212@mict.go.th or at mm@rta.mi.th and at web_report@nbtc.go.th if they discover any inappropriate content defamatory to the monarch.

People who discover inappropriate content can contact the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society's 1212 call centre, the NBTC's 1200 call centre, or email the NBTC at web report@nbtc.go.th.

According to the Bangkok Post, the NBTC on Monday officially opened a centre for monitoring content broadcast on radio and television as well as social media networks.

Located at the NBTC's headquarters, there are 10 staff working at the centre around-the-clock service, divided into three eight-hour shifts.

The action came after the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission earlier called on mobile phone operators and Internet service providers to help block inappropriate websites.

It also asked local operating units of Facebook, YouTube, Line and Twitter to block websites insulting the monarchy.

NBTC deputy secretary-general Kokich Danchaivichit also asked the people not to click like or share comment, but report the ministry's monitoring centre immediately.

The NBTC officially opened the centre for monitoring content broadcast on radio and television as well as social media networks yesterday.

The NBTC discovered 120 webpages that posted inappropriate content on the famous social network and the video-sharing sites.
