Various orders issued by 2014 coupmakers scrapped



A total of 66 subordinate laws and orders issued by the coupmakers after seizing power on May 22, 2014 stand annulled after coup leader and Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha yesterday issued a nullification order.

Many of the laws and orders remain effective.

Prayut's announcement of National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) Order 9/2019 came with the publication in the Royal Gazette website at 6.05pm on Monday.

Of the 66 orders, 28 of them are NCPO announcements, 29 are NCPO orders, four are orders of NCPO chief Prayut and five are NCPO orders requiring criminal investigations to be under the jurisdiction of military courts.

The nullification order was issued under a special authority of the draconian and controversial Article 44 and Article 265 of the Constitution.
