said According to Interior Minister Jarupong Ruengsuwan, an investigation has been launched, as the preliminary examination of the audio clip provided ambiguous conclusions. The alleged provincial governor, whose identity has been withheld, admitted that the voice in the clip was his, but claimed that the clip had been doctored to make him look bad.
Following the release of the audio clip, the Interior Minister said those who were opposed to the governor were free to express their opinions, but they should remain within the rule of the law. Another committee has been appointed to examine the clip. After the examination is completed, it will report the findings to the Interior Minister for further consideration. .
