Because in their small, greedy, juvenile minds they think it justifies the filthy, corrupt system under which they operate!

The result....was never in doubt.   The Hero-General has an absurdly large army (for a country with no intention of ever fighting anyone…except unarmed Thai people), lots of really expensive

Showing the true colours of the Thai justice system under this military regime, disgraceful !

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's constitutional court ruled on Wednesday that Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was "not guilty" of a conflict of interest for staying in an army residence after retiring.


The ruling meant that he can stay in power. The court's decision comes with tension high after months of protests to demand his removal.


Opposition parliamentarians filed a petition that it constituted a conflict of interest for Prayuth to have remained in military housing after his retirement from the army in 2014. Prayuth has said he needs to stay there for security reasons.
