A Chiang Rai district chief has given the thumbs up to a Hmong grandfather aged 93 and approved his physical fitness to own a rifle.
Khamron Sripho, Wieng Kaen district chief, said he has endorsed the physical fitness of the Hmong man, who submitted an application to own a rifle.
Yi Saewa, a resident of Moo 6 village in Tambon Muang Yai, submitted the application to the village headman, who found that he met all the requirements but taking account of the applicant’s age, passed the application to the district chief to consider.
Khamron said it was amazing that Yi passed all the physical tests including a sight examination and found him fit and firm and thus approved the application. The Hmong grandfather will be given a license to buy and own a rifle once police check the criminal database and guarantee he has no criminal record, Khamron added.
Yi said he has never fallen ill and never consulted a doctor thanks to drinking a herbal solution prepared to a family recipe. He is still active on his farm, he said.
