A Thai man faces up to 32 years in jail for 'liking' a Photo shopped image of the country's king on Facebook.

Thanakorn Siripaiboon was arrested at his home in Samut Prakan province for sharing the doctored photo of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, as well as an infographic on a Thai corruption scandal, with around 600 friends.

Under Thai law, anyone convicted of insulting the revered but ailing 88-year-old king can face up to 15 years in jail on each count.

"On December 2, he clicked the 'like' link on a doctored photo of the king and shared it with 608 friends," said Colonel Burin Thongprapai, a military junta legal officer.

He said the 27-year-old mechanic has confessed to charges of sedition, lese majeste and computer crimes, and faces up to 32 years behind bars.
