Over the past 18 months, he has sent nearly 100 letters to heads of state, most of them from his Bavarian retreat, according to an account of the investigation from The Times of London. He allegedly congratulated the Greek president on his appointment, named several new generals, and banned his sister from standing in Thai elections—all from the comfort of the luxury resort.
It’s claimed that he also issued an order for the execution of a criminal during his stay.
The Thai embassy in Berlin has yet to respond to the allegations.
The king’s extended stay in Germany while carrying out affairs of state could breach the principle of territorial sovereignty. Critics are reportedly urging the government to declare him persona non grata in Germany and hit him with a €3 billion ($3. 6 billion) inheritance tax bill.
Thailand is likely to argue that other heads of government have managed their country’s affairs during trips abroad, but the extended nature of the king’s stay will embolden critics who say that governing from Germany infringes on Germany’s rights as a sovereign nation.
Vajiralongkorn’s effective residency in Germany came to light at the beginning of the pandemic, when German hotels were ordered to close by the government. The Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl, in the Alpine resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, successfully appealed against the ruling, arguing that it should be allowed to continue hosting the king.
