He is expected to be back at the end of this month. 

Surachate – known throughout the Thai and English language press as Big Joke – was feeling the heat after his abrupt transfer from chief of immigration to a civil service role as special adviser in the PM’s office, said Sanook.

Naewna said in their headline reporting the same story that the LT-Gen was avoiding the “storm in his life”. 

Sanook said that exactly what he will do in the PM’s office on his return remains to be seen.
