Three boys on Sunday show an official the site where they said a group of some 10 wild monkeys tore down a list of voters for the charter referendum from the boards at a polling booth in a temple in Phichit’s Muang district yesterday.
An investigation found that the animals from a forest behind the temple compound had destroyed 12 sheets of the paper. Meanwhile, in Si Sa Ket province, officials seized paper flags with “Ga No” written on them. They believed that a group of people wanted to cause trouble by urging people to vote no in the August 7 referendum, as the words could mean “choosing no”. However it turned out to be the flags directing participants to a meeting of a company that sells “Ga Nobrand” coffee.
