A Thailand court on Tuesday sentenced a former civil servant, identified by her first name Anchan, to a record prison term of 43 years and six months for breaching the country's strict lese majeste law on insulting or defaming the monarchy, lawyers said. The court initially announced her sentence as 87 years but reduced it by half because she pleaded guilty to the offenses.
