Police have warned teens to think twice before swaying their hips and stripping on Facebook Live as it is illegal and highly inappropriate.
Royal Thai Police Spokesman Pol. Col. Krissana Pattanacharoen recently made a comment regarding one particular trending Facebook Live video, in which a Matthayom 6 student in a cosplay Japanese school uniform performs a strip tease before changing into her Thai school uniform.
Krissana said that the seductive video is a violation of Section 14 (1) of the Computer Crime Act, which criminalizes importing data of pornographic nature that is publicly accessible. The police spokesperson said the action may result in imprisonment for not more than five years or a fine of not more than THB100,000 or both, Sanook reported.
Krissana added that police will summon the high school girl in the viral video for questioning. He warned other teens that police will prosecute them for sexy dance videos as well.
“I’d like to warn the teens, both male and female, who are about to do this [hosting a provocative show on Facebook]. There have been so many cases, and the police will take them seriously,” Krissana said.
