Police said that both royalists and pro-democracy demonstrators were breaking the law on Monday by rallying at the German embassy on Sathorn Road in Bangkok.
Deputy Metropolitan Police chief Piya Tawichai said two teams were policing the demonstrations. Metropolitan Police Division 6 officers were taking care of the pro-democracy march from Sam Yan, while Division 5 officers were deployed outside the embassy.
The police chief said that the royalist group and the student-led pro-democracy demonstrators had not requested permission for their gatherings, both of which were illegal under emergency law to control the spread of Covid-19.
