" The exhibition, named Faces Of Victims Of 112, was held at the LeRoy Neiman Gallery at New York’s Columbia University by Thai dissident Pavin Chachavalpongpun, an outspoken critic of the Thai monarchy and a royal academic who himself faces charges under lese majeste.
Vacharaesorn Vivacharawongse, 42, the King’s second-oldest son, who lives in New York, confirmed that he went to see the exhibition on his official Facebook page Monday.
“I love and hold my loyalty to the monarchy, but I believe that ‘knowing’ is better than ‘not knowing,’ and each individual has their own opinion which is derived from their own experiences,” Vacharaesorn wrote.
“Even if we don’t listen to their opinions, it doesn’t mean that their viewpoints and opinions don’t exist. Therefore, it is good to know and listen and hear reasons and viewpoints from parties.”
He added that “it is another matter whether to agree or disagree, but we have to talk with principles.”
