Army chief dismisses coup rumour, but again says “don’t cross the line”

Thailand’s Army Commander-in-Chief General Apirat Kongsompong today ruled out the possibility of a coup d’état , saying that unfounded reports of a coup were spread by “the same old group of people” and he asked the public not to fall prey to fake news on social media.

 

General Apirat said that sightings of tanks on the streets was used by those with ill-intent to spread false rumours. Confirming the army’s political neutrality, and that they would always be on the side of the people, he added “The truth is there is nothing.  Everything is proceeding in accordance with the election timeline.”

 

Apparently referring to a known group of political elements he said “Do not cross the line. Everyone must play by the rules.”

Army chief just waiting for the election to be over, so he can show off his new Chinese tanks.:cheesy:

I've lost track of that. Have they been delivered yet - and if so how many?

There's so much this lot make a fanfare about what they've ordered/initiated, then it all goes quiet.
