The Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan, on direct instructions from King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, has also declared Friday, October 14, 2016, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Bhutan to mourn Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Recall that, earlier this month (2016-10-06), the Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan had already announced October 7, 11, 12, and 13, 2016, as non-working public holidays throughout Bhutan, in line with the official list of national and regional non-working public holidays in Bhutan for the calendar year 2016, released last fall (2015-10-01) by the Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan.

The aforementioned declaration by the Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan of Friday, October 14, 2016, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Bhutan to mourn Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, follows a similar declaration by Thailand's Government Cabinet who declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Thailand, on Friday, October 14, 2016, to mourn King Bhumibol Adulyadej, late last night (2016-10-13).
