The police arrested a taxi driver on Monday and charged him with lèse majesté after a passenger filed a police complaint over their conversation on inequality in Thai society.
The passenger, reportedly a university lecturer, recorded the conversation between them in January on his mobile phone and submitted it to the police as evidence.
The 43-year-old taxi driver is now detained at the Phaya Thai police station.
