Spring News had notified the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission that it decided to suspend Mr Danai Aekmahasawat from moderating the Fact Time programme for a temporary period pending the investigation.

Also, the station said it had stopped the rerun in the social media of a controversial part of the programme entitled “Drama Netiwit – a progressive or defiant student who refuses to kowtow in an oath-taking ritual”.

The controversial part was aired on July 20 between 8.25 pm-8.55 pm and eventually rerun in the social media.

NBTC secretary-general Takorn Tanthasit alleged that the controversial part has improper content which may violate Section 37 of the broadcasting law.
