After Coup

Police assigned to study law on public gatherings

The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has assigned the police to study a draft of a law on public gatherings so it can be proposed to the upcoming National Legislative Assembly, acting national police chief Watcharapol Prasarnrajkit said Monday.

The law was drafted years ago and debated in Parliament and reached the Senate but was not passed or re-endorsed by the House of Representatives, he said.

NCPO chief General Prayuth Chanocha said the appointment of the National Legislative Assembly members was expected to be endorsed by the end of this month before they start working midAugust.
