Thailand's Criminal Court has shut down 72 online gaming and gambling websites, following the suicide of a 12-year-old boy, who jumped from his school's sixth floor balcony when his father banned him from playing games.
The 72 websites that were shut down are those that are considered to encourage online gambling, or lead to online gaming addiction.
Meanwhile, Thailand's Mental Health Department plan to send a team of psychologists to aid with counselling those close to the 12-year-old.
Pongsathorn Wattanabenjasopha killed himself after his father banned him from playing videogames. The sixth-grader was announced dead at Muang Samut Prakan Hospital.
