Kuala Lumpur: A large student-led demonstration marched towards the German embassy in Bangkok to demand an investigation on the Thai King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s actions.
Protesters were questioning to German government whether Vajiralongkorn has used his political power from foreign soil or not. Protesters claimed that King Vajiralongkorn, who spent his significant time in Bavaria, ruled Thailand while he was in Germany.
During a march towards German embassy in Bangkok, anti-government protesters submitted a letter, asking Angela Markel’s government to open an investigation against the Royal family who was in Germany, especially during the pandemic times.
According to reports, King has his luxurious villa in Tutzing on Starnberger Lake near Munich and has often been seen there since his father died in 2006.
Meanwhile, Germany’s authorities also ensured that its government is already aware of the matter and has issued a warning that any state governance should not be pursued from German soil.
The pro-democracy protesters are demanding the removal of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha along with constitutional reforms and limiting the power of the monarchy.
As per Thailand’s regulations, reprimanding the kingship can result in a 15-year jail sentence, however, the protestors still rebel ferociously.
