Supreme Commander to warn Gen. Pathompong of his appearance on PAD stage

July 12th, 2008 - 9:47 am ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi  


The Supreme Commander, Gen. Boonsrang Niumpradit, says he could not yet contact Gen. Pathompong Kasornsuk, the Chief Advisor of the Supreme Command, after he appeared in full uniform on the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD)’s anti-government stage for the second time.

Gen. Boonsrang says the army could only penalize military officials who are in the rank of field marshal by issuing warning notices. However, he says harsher penalties would be imposed, if such high-ranking officials fail to comply with the regulations repeatedly.

The Supreme Commander says he is still trying to contact Gen. Pathompong, and he may send a letter to him, if he continues to be absent.
