May 22, 2011. Thai patient rights activist [Preeyanan Lorsermvattana](, from [Thai Medical Error Network]( (TMEN), was accused of “forging computer data”. The data in question is from the Network’s campaign to support Medical Malpractice Victims Protection Bill.

A medical doctor who filed the charge is from a group of medical doctors who strongly oppose the Bill, as we learned from [Preeyanan’s post in her Facebook]( This is probably the first known case of using Computer-related Crime Act to stop a legal campaign, targeting one of the campaign leaders.

Preeyanan have to report herself to the police station in Surin province this Wednesday, May 25. About 6 hours away from her residence in Bangkok.
