Welcome back II

1 01 2022

Thai Newsroom has this report on the recent royal security breach:

IN WHAT WAS SEEN AS A RARE occurrence, a Laotion woman unexpectedly approached His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn at Wongwian Yai on Tuesday, police said.

The Laotian woman, namely Saichai Thayalap, 44, was quickly brought out of the scene after she ran from a crowd on the street to a few metres from the monarch who just stepped out of an automobile at King Taksin the Great monument where he attended a homage-paying ceremony marking the Day of King Taksin the Great.

At one instance as the Laotian was unexpectedly approaching, the monarch took a few steps back while his entourage members scrambled to take her away. The royal rituals at the monument proceeded as scheduled.

The woman who was accompanied by a son of hers to the venue and mingled with the well-wishing crowd who repeatedly shouted ”Long Live the King” was known to have emigrated from Savannakhet province of Laos in 2016.

She was treated as a mentally deranged person at a nearby Somdej Chao Phraya hospital on the Thonburi side of the capital, the police said.

She told the police she had telephoned the monarch and used Line to contact him. The police also found her cellphone containing many pictures of the monarch.

Andrew McGregor Marshall’s Facebook page has several videos of the event.
