At the hotel Sea View Resort in Thailand nurture you on its Tripadvisor profile, where you can boast of a splendid score of 4.5 out of 5 points.

It has so much in its reputation in the digital rejseplatform that it has sued an american tourist to write negative reviews.

He risks up to two years in prison and a fine of 40.500 Danish kroner.

Sea View Resort is a four star hotel on the thai holiday paradise of Koh Chang, which, among other things, the Danish travel agency Spies offers stay on.

the Accusation is that the american tourist Wesley Barnes has damaged the hotel's reputation. And you have to be careful in Thailand, which is notorious for its strict law on defamation, which is often criticised by human rights organisations.

It is not exactly stjerneregn and hyldesttaler, as Wesley Barnes is resorted to, when Tripadvisor asked him to evaluate his / her stay.

In a review from July he writes that he has encountered 'unfriendly staff', which 'behaves as if they do not want any guests'. Another review has been removed because it violated Tripadvisor's guidelines. Here accused the american hotel for 'modern slavery'.

Wesley Barnes, who works in Thailand, has already spent two nights in the clink. He was arrested by the thai immigrationspoliti, who detained him on the island, before he was released on bail.

According to the Sea View Resort began the conflict, as Wesley Barnes tried to take the alcohol up to his room, which he was told was against the rules. It got american to see red and charge the staff in condescending terms, writes the Bangkok Post.

- We understand good, if anyone thinks it is exaggerated by the us to take the law of defamation in use, recognises it in a presseudtalelse.

Sea View Resort, however, has chosen to maintain the charge, because the american tourist include 'crafted' stories ' in its reviews.
