Wissanu Krea-ngam

 

The government will pay Bt1 million in compensation to the next of kin of 27 of the people killed in last Saturday’s mass shooting in downtown Nakhon Ratchasima.

 

Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam, who chairs a committee established to decide on settlements, said on Friday (February 14) that no money has as yet been earmarked in two fatalities over which there is “dispute”, or for the gunman, a rogue Army sergeant-major slain by police.

 

The wounded will receive compensation depending on the seriousness of their injuries, he said – either Bt200,000 or Bt100,000.

 

There are 29 victims in each category.

 

The government will pay Bt3 million to the relatives of each of the police officers and other military personnel who died in the tragedy.

 

The money is to be transferred to all the recipients starting on Saturday. Wissanu said he wants all payments completed within seven days.

the buck stops at the top, therefore a private payment to each victim;

from Cmdr in Chiefs own purse

 

The big boss is always responsible for the actions of his subordinates;

 just like how previous big boss wore the fault for what the subordinates did to the rice farmers

The general should pay the money from his own pocket - I am sure he can afford it easily.

Can anyone explain the difference in payout for soldiers and civilians?

I am serious!

Is this just a TIT thing or does it make sense, in some twisted way, that I am just not Thai enough to understand?

Must look after your mates...

Indeed! promote subservience amongst those doing your bidding as well!

The amounts are pitiful, Thailand is no longer a poor country, they have huge cash reserves, guess they intend keeping them! 😞

Money stops grief every time....after the payments, the deceased become distant memories.
