Drummond website survives court battle
« on: June 23, 2012, 02:14:00 PM »
Injunctions to have Andrew Drummond’s website blocked and some stories removed, as well as a criminal libel charge against the journalist, collapsed following a court agreement signed by Drummond and his protagonist Drew Noyes, a Pattaya-based businessman and publisher. The agreement thus terminates all threats against andrew-drummond.com.

Both parties agreed not to publish further stories against each other and Drummond agreed to withdraw a case of criminal libel he had brought against Noyes and which had been accepted by a Bangkok court. However, further stories can be published on the Drummond-Noyes front provided they are in the public interest and involve new information. Speaking after the court agreement, Drummond said that he was very pleased that the court had accepted his role as an investigative journalist and added that his stories often served as a warning to expats and others.

Something for others to learn from, others who are known to threaten, publish names, addresses, photos etc. Learn that things in public interest can well be published! And that public interest doesn't only depend on the story's content, but very often more on the person it is about, and that person's history. :stab
