Is the police chief going on leave? If so, who's in charge?
If National Police Chief Patcharawas Wongsuwan hasn't submitted a "leave of absence" letter, how can Premier Abhisit Vejjajiva appoint an "acting police chief" in his place?
And if the premier couldn't put someone there instead of Patcharawas, wouldn't all his talk about "clearing up the blockades" to move ahead with the probe into the Sondhi's attempted assassination case go down the drain?
What if Patcharawas returns from China (started Aug 5) after a ten-day trip and returns to "business as usual?"
Nobody, it seems, has the answers to those embarrassing questions just yet.
