Supreme Commander Thanasak Patimaprakorn and the leaders of the armed forces are to discuss the controversial audio clip said to be a conversation between Deputy Defence Minister Yuthasak Sasiprapa and deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, and hold a press conference to announce the military's stance on the matter, air force chief Prajin Jantong said on Tuesday.
ACM Prajin was referring to the clip of an alleged conversation between the two discussing a plot to seek support from the armed forces, the Defence Council and the National Security Council, to allow government to issue an executive decree to grant an amnesty to bring Thaksin home without being punished for any wrongdoing.
In the conversation, the two persons in the clip also touch on the possibility of amending the Defence Ministry's regulations governing military reshuffles and the government's control of the armed forces. The names of all armed forces commanders were mentioned in the conversation.
