coup in thailandIn a new development of the Thai political crisis, Thailand’s Army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha on December 26 said he “does not rule out the possibility of a military coup”, while expressing his concern over the current political situation, particularly the growing violence.

The general said a coup “could happen, but would depend on the situation and timing”. He believed that at this stage, nobody would listen to the military even if they did stage a coup.

“The military does not shut or open the door to a coup, but a decision depends on the situation. The military is now adhering to peaceful means and trying to place itself in a neutral position, not taking sides,” he said.

The army chief called for all sides to stop violence, saying that from what happened on December 26 at the Thai-Japanese sports complex at Din Daeng it was apparent that some group of people resorted to violence and inciting a state of chaos, the same way as that in 2010.
