PM warns politically motivated groups to abide by the law
Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha on Tuesday warned all politically motivated groups to adhere to the law, saying that problems in the past had escalated partly due to violation of the country’s laws, as well as a failure to enforce them.
The premier said he did not prohibit freedom of expression, but stressed that people should not violate the law.
Security officials are assessing the situation, as well as preparing for the coming funeral of King Rama IX, the PM said.
They will focus in particular on ensuring peace and order and the government’s stability, he added.
Prayut spoke after attending a meeting of the National Council for Peace and Order.
