Loan shark ads among 185 fake news circulating: Digital Ministry


MDES Minister Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn was accused Wednesday during the censorship debate of failing to combat the wave of cybercrime.

Pheu Thai MP for Loei Saran Timsuwan accused Chaiwut of protecting government stability at the expense of the country’s economy and citizens, leaving them prey to cyber criminals.

Chaiwut denied the charge, saying all countries face similar problems in the internet age and that Thailand has established several agencies to fight cybercrime.

Meanwhile, MDES advised people to be cautious about information received via social media, urging them to report anything suspicious to the Anti-Fake News center.
