SUBJECT: DCM RECEIVES DEMARCHE – MYSTERY FLYERS IN LA

 

Classified By: Deputy Chief of Mission Alex A. Arvizu, reason 1.4 (b) (

d)

 

1. (C) On March 13, DCM Arvizu received a demarche from MFA

Director-General Nongnuth Phetcharatana related to the

distribution of flyers in Los Angeles that make

\”inappropriate references\” to the King and the Crown Prince.

According to DG Nongnuth, the 18-page flyer was distributed

in Los Angeles in September 2005 by an anonymous source. She

admitted not having seen the full text of the Thai-language

flyer, but noted that it appeared to be primarily a personal

attack on the Thai Consul General in Los Angeles. She said

that there were only one or two sentences that contained

inappropriate references to the monarchy.

 

2. (C) DG Nongnuth stated that the RTG would like the FBI to

assist the Consul General in Los Angeles in finding out who

is behind the production and distribution of these flyers.

DCM asked if the flyers contained any threats against the

Consul General or the royal family. DG Nongnuth stated that

she was uncertain, but believed that the document contained

no direct threats.

 

3. (C) DCM responded by assuring the DG that Post would

inform the Department, and in particular Diplomatic

Security\’s Office of Foreign Missions (DS/OFM). DCM noted,

however, that in the absence of any threat it is unclear what

action DS would be able to take.
