Committee set up to find those responsible for organising March 6 boxing event

Recommended Posts

In that case can we expect the resignation of Army chief General Apirat Kongsompong anytime soon.

As the big wig he would have to take responsibility for the incident. Not, that he was involved - it was organized by one of his underlings who bluntly ignored if not purposely disregarded an army order. 

As it happened during Apirat's watch, the army might be in need of a new army chief general?

So basically the Army investigating themselves, that should work.

They are looking for a scapegoat.  🤥

Why would they investigate who set it up, there was no orders in place at the time were there to limit such venues?.  So its a mute point and a waste of money as I see it.

"Army chief General Apirat Kongsompong on Thursday (March 26) ordered the setting up of a committee to find the people responsible for holding a competition in Lumpinee Boxing Stadium on March 6.

 

The holding of the event could be deemed a violation of a government diktat, after Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, on March 3, ordered all public gathering locations such as sports stadiums to be closed."

 

Well according to those two sentences they held the event 3 days after they were told that they should close.

The boxing stadium, which is under the management of the Royal Thai Army,

That's an interesting concept.

It was recently announced by the top man that the number of generals in the armed forced are to be reduced by 50 per cent.  Is this the way to start that process?  Just out of curiosity, why has it taken so long to decide to order the formation of a committee to investigate a straight forward and blatant disregard of a law supposedly set in place before the event by the one in charge of the country?  Didn't he get his share first?  Usually military justice follows a chain of command process.

'nuf sed.

Thailand = the land of Generals; would assume that Thailand has more generals than entire Europe 😉

Just arrest the top fifty generals, including Prayuth and Prawit, and jail them without trial. Problem solved. Guilty parties caught and dealt with.

By my reckoning he has only got 6 months or so left in post - doesn't he retire in October? Maybe he looks so upset because it looks like the plague has put the mockers on the traditional pre retirement coup?
