Bangkok Post : King of hearts, beloved of all
His Majesty the King made his first public appearance since his May 2 operation on Tuesday. It was an event that brought joy and happiness to all Thai people. Dressed in a pink, short-sleeved shirt and khaki trousers and, as always, with a camera slung across his chest, he made his way in a wheelchair from the Chalerm Prakiat building to the Siriraj pier to observe the water level in the Chao Phraya River. Later on, the King laid wreaths at the statues of Prince Mahidol of Songkhla, the Princess Mother and King Rama V.
The King's activities were closely watched by thousands of people who appeared overwhelmed with joy at the mere sight of his presence.

The King, who has spent most of his time at the hospital since admission in September, 2009, underwent an operation on May 2 to drain excess cerebro-spinal fluid. The operation went well as the volume of the fluid has decreased satisfactorily and there are no complications. This is very welcome news, and thanks are due to his medical team.

Bangkok Post : HM falls ill as he sees the suffering
His Majesty the King was so concerned for flood victims he fell ill last week, although the monarch's condition has improved, HRH Princess Chulabhorn said yesterday
The princess made the statement while visiting and giving donations to flood victims in Pathum Thani yesterday.
She said that about a week ago, His Majesty the King had been watching flood news stories on television for five hours.
She said the monarch, who has been concerned for people suffering from the deluge, was probably stressed and fell ill as a result.

Bangkok Post : King's health 'back to normal' after scare
HM the King has suffered internal bleeding, says HRH Princess Chulabhorn.
The princess yesterday said she had rushed to see the King after being informed that His Majesty had discharged about 800cc of blood and his blood pressure was dropping.
The King went into shock and lost consciousness. The blood was the result of bleeding in the stomach and colon. Doctors suspect the King's condition was caused by stress.
[...]
Princess Chulabhorn said the King cared for his subjects like his own children. He does not speak much and so when ailments manifest, the symptoms can be severe.
But the King's health is back to normal after receiving treatment.

Thailand's criminal court sentenced a 61-year-old man to 20 years in prison Wednesday for sending text messages deemed offensive to the country's queen.
The court said Amphon had sent offensive text messages in May 2010 to a personal secretary of then Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva. Amphon denied the charges, saying he was unfamiliar with the text message function on mobile phones and did not know the recipient of the message.
[...]
Amphon was arrested August 3, 2010, and detained at Bangkok Remand Prison without bail after being indicted by the public prosecutor for lese majeste.
Before his arrest, he had lived with his wife, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren in a rented room in Samut Prakan province, on the outskirts of Bangkok. He is retired and receives a 3,000-baht ($100) monthly allowance from his children. He has mouth cancer, and has required regular medical care since 2007.

The King and us: fresh account of Thailand's royals

A new book has lifted a veil of secrecy surrounding Thailand's monarchy, detailing investments and ownership of tens of thousands of properties worth more than $US40 billion. The book, published ahead of King Bhumibol Adulyadej's 84th birthday on Monday, details his tireless work to improve the lives of Thailand's rural poor since he acceded to the throne 65 years ago.

Titled King Bhumibol Adulyadej: A Life's Work, the book also documents for the first time that a unique and little known institution, the Crown Property Bureau, is one of the largest investors in Thailand, controlling assets valued at $US6.7 billion. The bureau owns 8400 hectares of land in Bangkok, mainly in the historic part of the city, worth an estimated $US33 billion at 2010 prices. Across the country the bureau has 40,000 rental properties, about 17,000 in Bangkok, including government offices, slum communities, shops, markets and prime sites occupied by hotels, office blocks and shopping centres, the book says. Outside the capital the bureau owns a total of 33,400 hectares of land, it says. The book says the assets belong to the monarchy as an institution which continues from reign to reign, not to the king in his private capacity.

It also reveals the American-born and Swiss-educated King Bhumibol, the world's longest-reigning monarch, has been a critic of the harsh lese-majeste laws under which more than 300 people have been charged since 2006. Anyone who insults the king, queen, heir or regent faces up to 15 years in jail on each charge.

The book details the mysterious death in June 1946 of King Bhumibol's brother, Ananda Mahidol, the eighth monarch of Thailand under the Chakri dynasty, who was shot in the head as he lay on his bed inside the Grand Palace with a Colt 45 pistol. The weapon had been given to him by an American spy, Alexander MacDonald, who later founded the Bangkok Post.

The book cites evidence the death was an assassination and discusses various possible suspects or conspirators, including three royal staff members, a Swiss girlfriend of King Ananda and a Japanese spy allegedly hiding in Bangkok at the time. The book lays out the facts of the death but makes no conclusion as to the cause.

. . . . . . . . . .
I should add that details concerning the management, wealth and extensive landholdings of the Crown Property Bureau are not "little known" and have been the subject of various media reports for many years now.

Defining a monarchy
Hitting the shelves just in time to celebrate the 7th cycle birthday anniversary of His Majesty the King is a book simply titled King Bhumibol Adulyadej: A Life's Work. Yet this book, published by Editions Didier Millet, is set to become an _ if not the _ authoritative tome on His Majesty the King's life and achievements.

The King's Birthday in Thailand
December 5 marks the 84th birthday of His Majesty Bhumibol Adulyadej, the King of Thailand and the longest-serving monarch in the world.
The King's Birthday in Thailand is celebrated vividly with fireworks, a candle ceremony, and a chance to see a flash of the King as he speeds by in his motorcade. Throngs crowd the streets to wave flags, socialize, and to enjoy spectacular fireworks in honor of their king.

American Sentenced for Defaming King
A court in Thailand on Thursday sentenced an American citizen, Joe Gordon, to two and a half years in prison for defaming the country’s royal family. Mr. Gordon, who was born in Thailand, had been accused of translating excerpts of a banned biography of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and then posting them online. Mr. Gordon, 55, pleaded guilty to the charges in October, and as a result a judge in Bangkok’s criminal court reduced by half his proposed sentence of five years.

U.S. Citizen Jailed for 2 1/2 Years for Insulting Thailand

US blogger jailed for insulting Thai king - Asia-Pacific - Al Jazeera English
Joe Gordon, a Colorado resident who was born in Thailand, had pleaded guilty in October to using the internet to disseminate information that insulted the monarchy, charges stemming from material posted on his blog in the US.
"The defendant is found guilty ... The court sentenced him to five years in prison. But he pleaded guilty. That makes the case easier, so the court decided to cut it in half to two years and six months," a judge said at a criminal court in Bangkok on Thursday.
Before the verdict was read out, Gordon told reporters: "I'm not Thai, I'm American. I was just born in Thailand. I hold an American passport. In Thailand there are many laws that don't allow you to express opinions but we don't have that in America."
He was arrested in May when he visited Thailand for medical treatment.

Lese Majeste -15 Years For Insulting The King | The Moderate Voice

http://www.businessweek.com/news/201...-king-law.html
Hundreds of Thai royalists called for U.S. Ambassador Kristie Kenney to “get out” of the country after a State Department official questioned the conviction of an American for insulting King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Thailand and Lese Majeste
These lèse majesté laws returned to international attention this year with two high-profile cases. In May, a Thai-American citizen was arrested after he translated parts of a banned biography of the King and posted them on the internet. The man was sentenced to 30 months in prison, a sentence that earned a sharp rebuke from the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok.
Then, in November, a 61-year-old man was given 20 years for a series of controversial text messages that he had sent the previous year. Ampon Tangnoppakul, also known as “Akong” (Thai for Grandpa), became the center of an online campaign organized by Thai journalists and human rights advocates to pressure the monarchy to pardon the elderly and sick grandfather.
King Bhumibol, for his part, has actually called for more criticism, and usually does issue clemency for law violators; it’s important to note that the Thai government, not the monarchy, is responsible for bringing charges of lèse majesté against individuals.
