The board ruled that some of the contents of the Face Time programme which was aired on the night of July 20 are deemed a threat to national security and public good morals and may result in an overthrow of democratic rule.

Moreover, the broadcasting board also issued a warning for Voice TV, saying that the content of the Tonight Thailand programme broadcasted on May 25 last year was deemed a violation of NCPO orders and was not allowed to be aired.

The airing of the programme also went against an agreement between NBTC and Voice TV.
