BANGKOK — New legislation passed Sunday by the junta’s rubber stamp parliament appointed His Majesty the King as the sole authority over royal assets.

Under the bill, the power to appoint a board of directors to manage the crown property rests solely with King Vajiralongkorn, and not a government official as delineated in previous laws. It was the latest move by the military government to cement King Vajiralongkorn’s control over palace affairs.
