Swiss man pardoned

This guy is very lucky. On the 29th March I blogged about the Swiss man who had been sentenced to ten years in prison for insulting the King of Thailand. At the time I said that whilst ten years seemed an extremely stiff sentence the main problem was that he had lived in Thailand for 10 years and so he could hardly fail to know the situation with regard to insulting the King.

Today come news that the King has pardoned him. According to the BBC "Now he has received a royal pardon, Mr Jufer is expected to be deported as soon as possible"
