The entire disease control unit at U-tapao airport, including its chief, have been transferred for their alleged failure to check properly the hotel in Rayong province where the Egyptian military mission was staying last week, allowing them to venture out shopping unhindered.

 

Dr. Suwanchai Wattanayingcharoenchai, director-general of the Disease Control Department, said today that investigators have checked the D Varee Diva Central Rayong Hotel and found it was not equipped with access control or tracing systems.

 

To assist the probe, into the breach of safety regulations by the Egyptian military personnel, he said it was necessary to move the entire disease control unit out, replacing them with health personnel from Chon Buri province.

 

Dr. Suwanchai said security measures at all hotels in Rayong, which are used as quarantine facilities, will be strengthened, to make sure that those who are exiting quarantine are properly checked and controlled.

Did the Egyptian group bypass Immigration, a branch under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs?

It would seem that immigration under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs would be responsible to verify lodging, any covid 19 testing & quarantine stay and movement among the public, not the general airport employees. 

Best case scenario would have been, presumably knowing the Egyptian filed flight plans in-out-in-out Thailand within a 24-48 hour period, to house the 30-person  mission at or near the airport, preferably in a Thai military secured facility. This mission was not a tourist group! 

Thus responsibility for the mission's stay should fall to Ministry of Defense (Prayut) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Why not just fire them? Plenty of people, I am sure, would be willing to take their places.

I have to ask this question

What Government ( in there right minds )would allow a Military Delegation from another Country free access outside of a Secure Military Compound ?

It is just not done by any Government on the grounds of National Security.

The original flight plan was not to UTP is was to BKK and was altered in flight. The Egyptian Embassy made the transportation arrangements and hotel reservations to an unauthorized hotel.

Not the done thing. Transfer to Nakhon Nowhere International for a while, until things quieten down, then back on the roster is the way it's always been done.
