Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn has fired four officials, two palace statements mentioned on Tuesday, the newest shake-up following the sacking of their king’s royal consort a week.
In 1 statement, two palace officials, recognized as bedroom guards, were fired for”malicious misconduct” and”adultery,” that it said was a breach of a code of behaviour for courtiers.
In another record, two army officers were fired to be”lax” in their obligation as palace guards and”acting unbecomingly of the titles and ranks “
The four were stripped of their positions and names, the statements said.
The four dismissals on Tuesday followed people of six palace officials a week, who had been accused of acute disciplinary misconduct that led to damage to the royal support.
Considering taking the throne after the death of his revered father in 2016, King Vajiralongkorn is an assertive constitutional monarch, requiring more direct control of royal affairs as well as the crown’s enormous riches, and moving two army units in the military to his power.
Last week, the king demoted Royal Consort Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi within an extraordinary announcement, only months later granting her title.
