If Deputy Defence Minister Yuthasak Sasiprapa cannot prove he is not one of the two voices on a controversial audio clip said to be a conversation between him and former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, he should resign in disgrace, Senator Somjet Boonthanom said on Monday. 

Gen Somjet said only Gen Yuthasak knows if the voices in the audio clip are real.

If he is not able to clear himself he should resign as deputy defence minister, because staying on in the position would damage the reputation of both the armed forces and his family.
