Army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha has apologised for using strong words to describe the yellow-shirt People's Alliance for Democracy, but refused to respond to nasty criticism from PAD co-leader Sondhi Limthongkul.
Gen Prayuth said on Monday he was sorry he spoke harshly and inappropriately when he reacted to a broadcast on the pro-PAD ASTV-Manager TV channel about the Thai-Cambodian border dispute around Preah Vihear temple ruins.
He also said the soldiers who protested in front of the ASTV-Manager office on the weekend acted on their own and gathered in their off-duty time and did so because they wanted to protect the army's pride and their commander in chief.
