CHIANG RAI — The provincial governor on Friday denied any favoritism in considering citizenship for three members of the football team rescued from Luang cave, as the government pledges to speed up the process.

 

The interior ministry on Thursday promised to find a way to bestow citizenship upon Coach Ekkapol Chantawong; Adul Sam-on, 14; and Pornchai Kamluang, 16. All three were revealed to be stateless people as the world celebrated their miraculous extraction from the flooded cave after 17 days. The newly appointed governor of Chiang Rai however said everything has to run the proper legal course.

This is exactly as it should be. Why should they go before in the que? It should be the same for all. However, the government is saying that they work to speed up the procedure, so then I guess we just have to believe that and wait for the result.

We did offer, but they said 'No Thanks'. We wouldn't like to have that in the papers.

Like the good ol' Tiger Woods who rubbed it on their faces 😆

 

Seriously though, stateless children must take priority in such cases because for the majority of them they know no other place.

All those boys done was to get trapped in a cave

 

Sorry to say; they are hardly heroes

The heroes are the rescuers, but in this specific case, the victims are very worthy of admiration for their incredible resilience!

 

To those who dismiss the achievements of this group, I would suggest to think hard (assuming they can) and imagine how they would react facing similar conditions???

 

Even careful people can find themselves in a terrifying situation after a natural event...an unexpected earthquake can bring down the building where you were staying, and before you know it, you find yourself deep under tons of rubble!

 

How would you react? Would you remain as calm as these kids, for many days?

 

Think before making statements!
