Army panel to investigate conscript beatings

- +

An army committee has been set up to look into two cases of physical abuse against conscripts which were posted on YouTube, army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha said yesterday. 

About 20 military instructors were allegedly involved, and the probe will extend to their immediate commanders to determine whether they failed to keep their subordinates in check, he said.

If found guilty, the instructors could be jailed for up to 30 days, while the officers would face a salary cut.
