Deputy army spokesman Winthai Suwaree on Sunday denied a rumour soldiers had transported weapons from southern provinces to anti-government rally sites in Bangkok and urged the public to think carefully about information related to the current political situation. 

Col Winthai said a check had been carried out on the claim that had found nothing to verify it. He pointed out similar rumours or speculation regarding the military have been flying around and all of it was not true. The allegation was said to have been made by former Pheu Thai MP for Samut Prakan Worachai Hema.

“There has been a lot of rumours lately and people need to examine the credibility of the information sources,” he added.
