All communication devices will be banned in the courtroom during Friday’s reading of the verdict in the cases against former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra and officials from her government, Supreme Court officials said on Tuesday.

Anyone wanting to attend the verdict reading – including the defendants, their lawyers, members of the prosecution and media professionals – will be asked to leave their mobile phones and other communication devices with friends or colleagues outside of the courtroom.

If people choose to keep phones on their persons, they will be required to switch off their devices and put them in envelopes provided by court officials. They will not be allowed to use the devices while inside the courtroom.
