Protesters in Thailand had criticised the king for his extended trips abroad and called for changes to curb his powers and wealth. They argued that the king should relinquish control of the royal funds and of key army units that he had brought under his direct command.

Twenty-four protesters have been denied bail and remain in pre-trial detention for their political activities. Rights groups warned this could pave the way for treason charges for protest leaders. Student groups from across 23 universities issued a joint statement rejecting the ruling, while images on social media showed some protesters holding signs in public calling for the lese-majesty law, also known as article 112, to be abolished.

Four people were later arrested over the signs, according to Thai Lawyers for Human Rights. In a sign of how attitudes have shifted among the Thai public, the prime minister, Prayuth Chan-ocha, on Thursday encouraged cinemagoers not to abandon the tradition of standing when the royal anthem is played before films. Prayuth said some people were afraid to stand, fearing they might be bullied by pro-democracy activists.
