A man who put up six Facebook posts insulting the Thai monarchy has been jailed for 30 years.
Pongsak Sriboonpeng, 48, was handed the toughest-known sentence under the country's royal defamation law, AFP reported.
He was sentenced to 10 years on each count with the 60-year jail term halved after he pleaded guilty, his lawyer Sasinan Thamnithinan said.
"It's broken the record," she said of the severe jail term.
Since the Thai military seized power in a coup last year, the number of prosecutions for royal defamation has risen from two to 56, rights groups say.
In April a 58-year-old businessman was jailed for 25 years for posting Facebook messages deemed to be defamatory to the monarchy.
