The German Parliament has said that Thailand's King Maha Vajiralongkorn enjoys diplomatic immunity during his extended stays in his Bavarian villa, but the state does have the power to expel him from the country.

According to an assessment by the Bundestag's academic services (WD), and commissioned by the socialist Left party, the German state has very little power to prosecute the Thai king, despite recent threats by Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

Maas has previously warned Vajiralongkorn against ruling his country from Germany amid ongoing protests against what critics say is the king's undemocratic rule in Thailand. More than 50 people were injured in demonstrations in Bangkok this week alone.

"We have made clear that the policies that affect the country Thailand are not to be carried out from German soil," Maas said in early October.

But short of expelling the king from Germany as a "persona non grata," law enforcement has no way to prosecute the king, who represents Thailand even when he is on vacation, the Bundestag found. That means that, under diplomatic immunity, he cannot be punished for crimes committed in Germany or be put under surveillance.

Lockdown luxury
Vajiralongkorn spends months at a time in his villa by Lake Starnberg, just south of Munich, and in spring he frequently stayed in a luxury hotel in the ski resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, defying a ban on hotel stays in the state — at the time one of Bavaria's coronavirus lockdown measures.

The king returned to Thailand in October, but the Left party has called on the German government to ban him from reentering Germany. "Anyone who, like the king, brutally suppresses a democratic movement with a military junta, should not be rewarded with a visa for luxury extended stays in Germany," Left party parliamentarians Sevim Dagdelen and Heike Hänsel said in a joint statement.

Earlier in November, the German Foreign Ministry said it had found no evidence that the king was issuing decrees from Bavaria that were violating human rights — though opposition politicians found this less than credible, considering the length of the king's stays in Germany.

"The question of what the government was doing to counter such unlawful actions remains unanswered," Margarete Brause of the Green party said in a statement.

I think if he wants to return to Germany he must first agree to crawl through a crowded subway car and kiss everyone’s feet. While wearing a white crop top and shorts.

He should have to cycle back from Thailand in his pants

Very troubling news for the Thai people. Rama Lama Ding Dong (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HhA0Cghr4k) has arrested several protesters citing the lese majeste law. https://uk.reuters.com/ar...oyal-insult-idUKKBN2840P7

Rama Lama Ding Dong?
And Ding Dong we have a winner today. Star
(BTW, I do think that quite like rather aggressive testosterone driven dogs - the royal Rama Dama could benefit from being parted from his ding dongs...)
(BTW, 2 Rama Dama is such a typical bavarian expression, rather fitting since he seems to prefer Bavaria over Thailand)

Fairy, I think I just woke up the neighbors in the house next door! Off with his ding dongs!

But seriously, this mad dog rounding up dissidents is going to be the match to the tinder I hope. It's time for tyrants around the world to start looking over their shoulders because We The People are coming for them.

Excellent response. I'm afraid he'll never agree to reform, though. They'll have to drag him out kicking and screaming just like we're having to do with our dictator.

What a truly moving and heartfelt response. Minority rule usually ends in bloodshed.  I hope not this time, but Rama is crazy so....

More rumours/concerns about Rama's health. Bild carries the story that Suthida has to mop his brow and carry a portable fan with her because he seems to have some sweating/over heating issue

So he usually wears crop-tops and daisy dukes because he's running hot ?  Thinking

My thoughts exactly Fairy.

But you know, I would not rule out some kind of weird anti-aging hormone therapy.  He seems the type.

The Thai authorities constructed a wall out of shipping containers to prevent a planned protest march.



Let's see how it's going down with the endlessly creative Thai protestors

Big improvement! Thali protestors are creating duck money that can be used with the food stalls and vendors surrounding the protest areas. The rubber duck has become a symbol of protest for young Thais
