Thailandís King Bhumibol Recovers from a New Health Relapse

BANGKOK Ė King Bhumibol of Thailand, aged 88, this week suffered a new health relapse which he is now recovering from, according to a statement by the Royal Palace cited on Sunday by local media sources.

The statement said that the sovereign on Wednesday suffered from a fever and inflammation in his right lung and one of his knee joints undergoing treatment by his medical team.

His body temperature and blood pressure returned to normal on Friday, according to the statement.

The last public appearance made by the monarch was on Feb. 11, during a visit to royal palace by state television.

The Thai sovereign, who for many of his supporters is a demigod, has been on the throne for 69 years, making him the head of state who has spent the most time in office.

The Royal Palace is protected in Thailand by lese majeste laws, which carry penalties of between 3 and 15 years in prison for those who criticize the King and his family in a way that is considered offensive.

The law was created in 1908, during the time of absolute monarchy, and since then has been permanently in place.
