American faces prison for negative online review of Thai hotel

A Thai resort sued an American tourist over series of extremely negative reviews on Trip Advisor, Google and elsewhere saying that the resort practiced ’modern slavery’, among other things. Wesley Barnes faces up to 2 years in prison if convicted. Hotel management accuses him of causing ’damage to the reputation of the hotel’. Barnes was arrested by immigration police before being freed on bail.

From the articles it seems the guy was intentionally attempting to harm the hotel's reputation; he posted several derogatory reviews against the hotel and fabricated claims. I have zero sympathy for him; he lives and works in Thailand so he ought to be aware of the consequences of his actions.
