On 23 January 2023, a senior reporter / editor for Nation TV was at a courthouse in Bangkok to cover a trial of a group of Thai and Chinese businesspeople accused of running triad operations and racketeering rings. When the reporter filmed the defendants leaving the courtroom, a group of 7-10 men approached him and threatened him to stop filming and delete the footage. Some of the men also reportedly seized the phone from the reporter's hand and deleted the footage by themselves, before returning the phone and walking away. The reporter has filed charges against the unidentified men at a local police station.
