Rojanaphruk is well known for his pro-democracy and pro-free expression views. In 2012, he was investigated seven times by the Thai authorities on suspicion of violating the country’s draconian lese majesty law. He was later arrested following the May 2014 military coup and detained for “disturbing the public order and undermining peace.” He was released on the condition that he not participate in any protests or take part in political meetings.
