Prayut bows to court ruling, lifts restrictions on news reporting

In line with last week’s Civil Court ruling, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Tuesday officially lifted restrictions on media reporting news that may incite public fear or affect national stability.

The restrictions were issued under the Emergency Decree’s Article 9 and put into effect on July 30.

On Friday, the Civil Court ordered the premier to suspend all restrictions in response to a petition filed on August 2 by media organisation Reporter Production.
