Police brace for protests in Bangkok on Saturday


Police are ready to deal with protesters at several locations in Bangkok tomorrow (March 6), insisting their pro-democracy rallies are illegal.

Demonstrators from different protest groups plan to gather at the Criminal Court on Ratchadapisek Road, the 11th Infantry Regiment headquarters in Bang Khen district, and Democracy Monument.

National police chief Suwat Jangyodsuk warned the assemblies would be illegal under the emergency decree. He voiced concern that the protests could become violent but said police would do no more than was necessary to control the situation.
