Chiang Mai governor Pawin Chamniprasart said today (Monday) that he had no intention to find fault with the student who drew the painting depicting three former kings of Lanna wearing face masks.
He explained that he understood the student’s awareness of air quality and air pollution and had no intention whatsoever to obstruct any campaign for good air quality.
However, he said he thought the posting of the painting in the social media was improper and might hurt the feeling of the people in Chiang Mai and, therefore, the person who made the posting could be deemed breaching the computer crime act.
The governor confirmed that he would not take any action against the painter and he had already talked with the student’s parents.
