Defence Minister Sukumpol Suwanatat has labelled two southern insurgency leaders as liars for accusing state authorities of using violence against people in the deep South.
"We do not do that. It is a lie. Government officials will not do anything wrong. It is you who do it," he said yesterday.
"Authorities are disciplined and controlled. Negotiations can continue and we have compromised on many issues but it is not right to make such an accusation," ACM Sukumpol added.
