Anchilee Scott-Kemmis named Miss Universe Thailand 2021 has been accused of violating the Flag Law for a poster showing her in a photo resembling the Thai national flag.
Sonthiya Sawasdee, a former adviser to the House Committee on Laws, Justice and Human Rights, filed the charges with the Bangkok metropolitan police station.
He asked the police to charge her with abusing the Thai flag in violation of Articles 53 and 54 of the Flag Act, Article 118 of the Penal Code and a 2020 announcement by the Prime Minister’s Office.
Sonthiya said he wanted the police station to check whether the use of the Thai flag was legal, as Miss Universe Thailand had many followers on social media.
The Miss Universe Thailand may have no evil intentions, but the officials involved should investigate the intent of the Miss Universe Thailand organizing team in the photo.
Scott-Kemmis left for the Miss Universe 2021 pageant in Israel at 11:30 PM yesterday.
