BANGKOK, 14 September 2010 (NNT) – Deputy Prime Minister for Security Affairs Suthep Thaugsuban has apologized for the mistakes in the tsunami warning system at Ban Nam Khem, Phang-nga Province.

In the wake of the six false alarms at the tsunami warning tower in Ban Nam Khem, Mr Suthep offered his apology to the public for the blunder. He said he would have the issue investigated, and plans would be devised to prevent a recurrence of such a mistake.

The Deputy Prime Minister also dismissed the speculation that National Disaster Warning Center (NDWC) Director Wiriya Mongkolweerapan would be sacked for the error, saying that would be too harsh a punishment.
