(Quoted directly from the Government’s Public Relations Department)

His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun has been deeply concerned about the people and officials affected by unrest in the southern border provinces.

His Majesty on January 21, 2019 assigned Privy Councilor General Paiboon Koomchaya to present baskets of various items given by His Majesty to relatives of the monks killed in the recent temple shooting, as well as a number of bags with royal gifts to other affected people, officials and volunteers.

The Commanding-General of the Fourth Army Area Command has instructed the inspection of 388 temples and Buddhist centers in the deep South. Security measures have been stepped up to ensure safety in various local communities and temples.

He stressed that at least a group of security officials and forces of the people’s sector must be posted to take care of each temple. Following the violent incident at a temple in Narathiwat, monks of all the 388 temples still go out to receive food offerings as usual.

Meanwhile, Special Representative of the Government Major General Nipon Rongsawas on January 21, 2019 chaired a meeting in Songkhla province to discuss concerted cooperation of all relevant agencies in creating better understanding about the southern situation among local people, in accordance with the royal advice to understand, reach out, and develop.

Other issues of discussion included safety measures, the revitalisation of a multicultural society, narcotics control, public participation, human rights promotion, and peacebuilding. Public relations campaigns for the southern situation are said to be necessary in order to prevent local people from falling prey to perpetrators of violence.

A ‘Phu Yai Barn’ or village headman has been arrested after allegedly killing a monk and his assistant near the entrance to Khao Phela monastery in Tha Chana district, Surat Thani Province. The Chief of Tha Chana district reported that around 2 am this morning he was accompanied by the Thana Chan police chief and other police officers to the crime scene.

When they arrived they found a pickup truck loaded with torches, fuel and coconut husks parked on the road. A man identified later as 48 year old Churat Khongkhlai was lying dead on the back of the vehicle with a gunshot wound to his neck.

10 metres away was the dead body of a monk found on the ground, later identified as 49 year old Phra Chonlathan Thavaro Kanchanabut, a monk of the Khao Phela monastery. He had two gunshot wounds, one in the back of his head and the other in his chest.

A .32 handgun was found near his body.

Assistant district chief Panyaporn Wattanapramote said they received a report from the chief of tambon Samor Thong, Thasaphon Thipsak, that two people had been previously arrested at 12.30am for leaving their homes during curfew hours. He led a team to the area and found Mr Manop and his team had already detained Churat and Phra Chonlathan. They had also seized a truck and equipment used for catching bees.

Panyaporn says “while he was reporting the curfew violation to the district chief over the phone, he heard gunshots. He went to check and found the village head had shot dead the monk and the layman.”

Mr Manop told police that he saw the monk pulling out a pistol and Mr Churat grabbing a knife. He said he was frightened and thought they would attack him, so he fired three shots at them.

Police have detained the village headman as the investigation continues.
