Re: “Prayut is not a state official, says Ombudsman”, Front Page, March 15. 

The Ombudsman’s announcement that Prayut Chan-o-cha is qualified to run for PM has a hidden bombshell. 

The Nation reports, “Raksagecha Chaechai, the Ombudsman’s secretary-general, said Prayut could not be considered a state servant because he had been appointed by the King outside the law, and his appointment was the product of a temporary power seizure.” 

That “outside the law” is something that has happened several times in the last 50 years, not at all temporary, and leaves the public asking just what has been going on for this to remain unchallenged for so long.
