The move followed the curfew order under the Emergency Decree, prohibiting people nationwide from going outdoors from 10pm to 4am.
On the first two days of the curfew, police will focus on publicising who can and cannot be outside, such as people working on night shift or who return home from work during curfew hours.
Those who must step outside during curfew hours are required to carry their ID card, a letter from the employer explaining the necessity and the phone number of the affiliated organisation. Police will consider this on a case-by-case basis.
A spokesperson of the Royal Thai Police Pol Lt-General Piya Uthayo, had warned that violators will face up to two years in prison and/or up to Bt40,000 in fines.
