As he faces heavy scrutiny for possessing expensive watches without reporting them to the anti-graft agency, a new Facebook page has emerged showing wholehearted support for Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan.

The page, “All Thais Love Lung Pom”, referring to Prawit’s nickname, drew 3,000 followers and a number of comments before the Defence Ministry came forward to deny that Prawit owned it.

The ministry said Prawit has no Facebook page.

“It’s not General Prawit’s page or his working group’s, because General Prawit has no policy to have a Facebook page,” said spokesperson Lt-General Koncheep Tantrawanich. “It could be ill-intentioned to create confusion and misunderstanding about General Prawit.”

Koncheep called on the administrators to close the page and said social-media users should use their judgement about information found online.
