Gen Prawit: Police checking beamed laser messages

DEPUTY Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan this morning (12.5.2020) refused to say whether the shining of laser messages at various important buildings and stations last night were in violation of the Emergency Decree pointing out that the police are investigating the incident, INN News reported.

The Deputy Premier added that he does not as yet know whether the Progressive Movement is behind the shining of hashtag laser messages, “Finding the Truth” and “The Truth Must Come Out” (#ตามหาความจริง #ความจริงต้องปรากฏ) at key buildings and stations.

They appear to be linked to the Black May 1992 events and the breaking up of the rally by the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship in 2010.

Meanwhile Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam refused to comment on this incident, only saying that he does not know anything about it and also does not know whether or not the action is in violation of the Emergency Decree.
