The Government continues its administration with no disruption during the national mourning, while preparing royal funeral ceremonies and memorial rites with the highest honor accorded to the late His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Government Spokesman Lieutenant General Sansern Kaewkamnerd said that although the whole country was grief-stricken, the national administration, as well as trade and investment, still operated normally, as the Government did not want to see a vacuum in its work.
The Government Spokesman stated that Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha thanked all Thais for joining hands in performing good deeds as a tribute to His Majesty King Bhumibol.
He dismissed as groundless a social media rumor that the Government had ordered that all portraits of the late King Bhumibol be removed from government offices, private organizations, public places, or the people’s houses.
He said that, during this period, in particular, the portraits of His Majesty King Bhumibol should be displayed for all people to pay respects to. However, flags with royal ceremonial emblems for celebrations when the late King was still alive should be brought down in order to pay respects to him.
