Aide: Prem aware of call to step in

- +

Gen Prem Tinsulanonda, Privy Council president and statesman, is aware of the call by a group of retired soldiers and state officials to step in and help defuse the political crisis, his close aide Lt Gen Pissanu Putthawong said on Tuesday. 

But Lt Gen Pissanu, chief of the office of the Statesman's Foundation, said he did not know whether Gen Prem would accept the request.

The group, which calls itself Men of State and led by former supreme commander Gen Saiyud Kerdphol, wants Gen Prem to act as the middle man to work under His Majesty the King in finding ways to end the country's turmoil.
