NCPO identifies instigator of anti-coup protests

BANGKOK, 27 May 2014 (NNT) - The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has concluded that an individual authority figure is responsible for inciting people through social media to oppose the coup.


Colonel Natthawat Chan-charoen, the NCPO deputy spokesman, announced that a businessman who owns illegal arcade machines, is the person funding the anti-coup movement. Each person was reportedly paid around 400 to 1,000 baht per day to come out onto the streets.

There has been a group of people regularly joining a protest at Victory Monument. To ensure peace and order, the Army would first attempt to negotiate with them to stop their movement.

However, if they continue staging protests or ever instigate riots, then the Army may use more extreme measures to disperse the crowd. Should anybody defy the Army’s curfew then they would also be guilty of violating martial law and be subjected to imprisonment.

CHIANG MAI: -- Soldiers deployed at many spots in downtown Chiang Mai are becoming increasingly popular with both tourists and local residents who pose with them for selfies.

The most popular spots are Three Kings Monuments, the Phae Gate, and Chang Puak Gate. At least 200 people are taking selfies each day.

Since the military seized power in a coup last Thursday, snatching selfies with soldiers and tanks has become trendy in many places in Thailand and the soldiers seem happy to comply.

Tourists and local residents are also showing their support by giving offering food, soft drinks and energy drinks and necessities to the soldiers.

The army has set up a tourism service post from which medical services and information are provided. The mobile medical units at Phae Gate and Huet Kaew Fitness Park are providing check ups and medications.
