National Reform Steering Assembly (NRSA) member Anusorn Jirapong was summoned by police on Tuesday after allegedly slapping a waiter’s face in a restaurant on Friday.
The waiter did not file a complaint against Anusorn, but asked police to make a record of the incident. Anusorn reportedly told police there was no-ill intent on his part and he would be willing to compensate the waiter for his act.
Anusorn reportedly took exception to being called “Pa” by the waiter. In Thai, “Pa” is generally acknowledged as a rich man who loves to spend money on entertainments. It can also mean a “godfather-like figure”.
Anusorn declined to make any further comment, only saying he would inform the NRSA about the issue.
