Pol General Adul Saengsingkaew, deputy chief of the National Council for Peace and Order, gave a guarantee Friday that the junta would not disturb press freedom, saying a new committee was set up to merely monitor the media.
Representatives of the Thai Journalists Association and the Thai Broadcast Journalists Association met Adul, who chairs the committee, to express their concerns.
The two groups urged the junta to respect people’s right to know what is happening and to have media freedom.
They said the junta should have clear guidelines for officials attached to many media organisations.
