    The disappearance of the memorial plaque of the 1932 Siamese Revolution at the Royal Plaza, which has since been replaced by a new one, remains shrouded in mystery.

    Some activists have cried foul over the missing metal plaque though the government has insisted it had nothing to do with its disappearance.

    The issue came to light after the matter went viral on social media on Friday.

    Police hesitant to investigate. All CCTV was "turned off". Military detaining protesters. Don't need to be Sherlock Holmes to know whodunit

    Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has ordered an investigation into the disappearance of the Siamese Revolution memorial plaque from the Royal Plaza but warned that a minor issue should not escalate into a conflict.

    The prime minister said on Tuesday the military and police would look into the missing plaque but added he did not want any group to use the matter to create conflicts while the country was returning to democracy through a general election.

    CCTV excuse won't wash

    EDITORIAL

    BANGKOK POST EDITORIAL COLUMN

    The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) once again has done a disservice to its residents. As the public eagerly awaited footage from 11 closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras installed in areas near and around the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall and the Royal Plaza to find out who removed the memorial plague to the 1932 Siamese Revolution, City Hall yesterday simply came out to say that all the CCTV cameras in the areas had been removed for repair. Thus, there is no video footage available.

    This is not the first time City Hall has failed to live up to the expectations of its residents when it comes to the need for images that it should have collected from CCTV cameras it has installed at different locations all across the city and that it should have stored in its database.
