This seems to have gotten quite messy and there is growing discontent amongst the German media that the German government isnâ€™t doing enough to address the issue. Germany invests heavily in projects over in Thailand and a lot of money is at stake here.
The current Thai Prime minister is trying to smooth things over as best he can and he has assembled a legal team of Thailand Lawyers along with the foreign minister to start a defence case. This will be an unwanted problem for the new Thai government and it is especially delicate as it involves the monarchy.
The Thai Democrat Party was dealt a crushing defeat during the last general election and they wonâ€™t want this tarnishing the generally decent job Abhist did during his time in office. On the Thai side national pride is at stake and its going to take a lot for the Thais to admit that they were in the wrong. Business as usual in the land of smiles.
