Prawit has hand in another story


His right hand was in the spotlight again on Friday as Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan appeared at Government House with a bandage on it.

Prawit refused to answer reporters’ questions about what had happened. The bandage was, however, spotted by Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha, who asked Prawit about it, to which the deputy PM said he had trigger finger.
When reporters again asked Prawit about it, Interior Minister Gen Anupong Paochinda replied that Prawit had punched him. The answer made Prawit laugh and lifted his mood. 
Prawit has remained silent since he was spotted with a luxury watch and a diamond ring on his right hand on December 6. 
He had never declared the jewellery in his assets list to the National Anti-Corruption Commission, which has given him until January 8 to explain where it came from.
