Thai King sacks four officials in shake-up


Thailand's King Maha Vajiralongkorn has fired four more officials, two palace announcements said on Tuesday, the latest shake up after the sacking of the King's royal consort last week.

In one announcement, two palace officials, identified as bedroom guards, were fired for 'extremely evil misconduct' and 'adultery,' which it said was a violation of a code of conduct for courtiers.

In another document, two military officers were fired for being 'lax' in their duty as palace guards and 'behaving unbecomingly of their ranks and titles.'

The four were all stripped of their ranks and titles, the announcement said.
