Gen Prawit: People allowed to lawfully mark 1932 revolution

DEPUTY Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan said that activities are allowed to be held to mark the 88th anniversary of 1932 revolution today (June 24) provided participants do not break the law, INN News reported this afternoon.

Gen Prawit stressed that these activities are not linked to the state of emergency decree still being in use and that it is only being extended to control the Covid-19 outbreak.

The Deputy Premier also said that it is still being investigated what the large cache of war weapons seized at Mae Sot town on the Thai-Myanmar border yesterday is linked to.

This could either be for drug trafficking or to be used by a political group to create an unrest.

Gen Prawit added that he is still waiting for a report from investigators whether the latter is the case and has ordered them to dig deep and reach the source of these weapons.

It is also not yet known whether the weapons cache was to be traded along the border not, he said, while confirming that there is nothing to worry about the country’s political situation.

Two machine guns, four M16 rifles, three M79 grenade launchers, 13 AK assault rifles and 10 small rifles and ammunition were among items seized by troops and border patrol police in a joint raid on a house in tambon Mae Tao, Bangkok Post said.
