  • (1888PressRelease) October 28, 2015 - The move follows numerous complaints having been received from members of the public.

    "A police spokesman said the police order was in immediate effect and was being applied throughout the country", noted BSA Law spokesman Apisakdi Kongkangwanchoke.

    Pol Lt-Gen Prawut Thavornsiri said that from now on, any roadblock to be set up was to be manned by a police inspector and there must be a clearly visible sign to show the roadblock is there. In addition, police superiors must be informed of the location of a roadblock and exactly what kind of roadblock it is.

    Pol Lt-Gen Prawut said that members of the public who came across a mobile roadblock could take pictures or a video recording of it and send this to the police spokesman's office, or they could phone 1197 to lodge a complaint.

    He said that if it was found any police officers had set up a roadblock without authorization, they would face punishment.
