BANGKOK, March 18 – The caretaker Cabinet today revoked the emergency decree and replaced it with the more lenient Internal Security Act, to be invoked in Bangkok and a few neighnouring provinces.
A government spokesperson said the Internal Security Act will be enforced in Bangkok and Nonthaburi provinces, Lat Lum Kaeo district of Pathum Thani and Bang Phli district of Samut Prakarn from tomorrow, March 19, through April 30.
The state of emergency was revoked following complaints from the private sector due to its negative impact on Thailand’s investment climate and tourism.
Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra reportedly expressed concern on violence and attacks on the homes of high-level officials and personnel in the government, independent agencies and the anti-government People’s Democratic Reform Committee.
She instructed caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul to coordinate with the National Police Bureau and director of the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order Chalerm Yubamrung to urgently hunt for the culprits involved in the violent incidents. (MCOT online news)
