Army chief urges protesters to clear Government House soon

Army Commander-in-Chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha Tuesday urged protesters to leave the Government House's compound as soon as possible after they have finished staging a symbolic protest there, a deputy spokesman of the Army said.

Col Winthai Suwaree said Prayuth was worried about the current situation and would like all people to return normalcy to the country when everybody respects the rule of law.

Winthai said Prayuth would like to remind the protesters that government offices are property of the country and all Thais so the protesters should not cause any damage to the Government House.

"As a result, after the people have entered the compound to carry out activities they want, they should leave all government offices so that officials can resume their work," the spokesman said.
