Has The Watch Struck Four For Embattled Prawit?


Recommended Posts

The general made it into the German press this morning further improving Thailand´s reputation wordwide . On the photo the man was trying to protect his face from the sun and showing another Rolex.

Which in excess would mean he has minimum 25 friends which is far more than I have myself .

 

One of the reasons I could not live in Thailand is that reading this kind of stories EVERY single morning would make me angry and probably beating up lovely Pam from Lao just to find some relieve. Nobody wants this .

These items and other watches which came to light later were omitted from Gen Prawit's assets declaration to the NACC. Gen Prawit claimed the luxury watches belonged to friends and were all returned...(hidden)...
