The government spokesman insisted that he had not ordered the images of the Prime Minister’s consort to be removed, as her attire was appropriate in accordance with the government’s regulations.
Government spokesperson Lt. Gen. Sansern Kaewkamnerd has dismissed a rumor spreading through the Line application, that he had ordered newspapers and the media to remove pictures of Mrs. Nara phorn Chan-o-cha, Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha’s consort, attending the chanting and alms-offering ceremonies as a tribute to His late Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej and to bless Her Majesty the Queen and His Majesty the King, on the occasion of His Majesty’s birthday anniversary on 28 July 2017 at Dusit Palace Royal Plaza.
He said Mrs. Naraphorn was wearing a black Thai traditional costume, which was in accordance with the announcement of the Prime Minister’s Office and the consorts of other cabinet members were also dressed properly.
He further stated that information is often distorted nowadays, with the goal to undermine the credibility of the government, so it is the public’s responsibility to carefully scrutinize the information they receive and avoid falling victim to a political scheme. – NNB
