Army chief General Apirat Kongsompong

 

Royal Thai Army has appointed military units to survey areas nationwide from 10pm to 4am, Army chief General Apirat Kongsompong said on Friday (April 3).

 

He made his remarks while presiding over a meeting of the Army Operations Centre through video conferencing to follow up on the Covid-19 pandemic at the Royal Thai Armed Forces Headquarters on Rajdamnoen Road in Bangkok.

 

The move follows up on the government’s curfew order prohibiting people from going outside from 10pm to 4am.

 

“We have appointed the Directorate of Operations to order the deputy director of the Internal Security Operations Command in each Army region to cooperate with provinces to conduct a survey,” he said.

 

“Besides, the Directorate of Operations is responsible for setting up checkpoints throughout Bangkok, while all units will conduct a survey between 10pm to 4am two to three times.”

 

He added that the Army has prepared a disease investigation form to keep a check on military personnel and families who have risk of Covid-19 infection.

 

“We request every unit to study the details and appoint commissioned officers to investigate the disease,” he added. “In the investigation, the parents or relatives must also be asked whether anyone is infected with Covid-19 or not.”

Nobody in the current crowd. Especially not Prawit who may very well have to leave the country. I feel that Prayuth will suffer the same fate as wife number 3.

 

The wheel is turning. And I have to admit to being impressed with the timing. Politically astute, a master stroke. Opportunism at its very best. BUT. It will not be liked, though whether the hoi-polloi will do anything about it is a whole different question.

I think little P, might just regret getting the army out on the streets, events might not go his way if ole Apirat has anything to do with it.

 

Hrmmm. And Apirat has, and will have, quite a lot to do with it. Apirate telegraphed this tur of events a while bacl, though of course, the timing wasn't altogether within his control.

 

Little P did not make the decision but was informed of it. Mr Piggy and the others were not, not directly anyway.

 

Meet the new boss... same as the old boss...

The disease in this case is not the virus.

And not surprising news at all. Now they get to show off their new armored toys.

He is after only a civilian now and under this emergency must obey the army?
