Junta repression deepens IV

21 08 2017

The military junta’s fears for 25 August have reached the stage where it is going to set up nationwide roadblocks to prevent persons its thugs believe to be Yingluck Shinawatra supporters getting to Bangkok.

The Nation reports that police “plan to set up checkpoints at every gate of the Chaeng Wattana government complex, with only the main gate near the administrative court open.” In addition, “security checkpoints would be set up in various areas across the country starting on Wednesday.”

The police state that “[a]ny suspicious movement would be blocked and the people involved could be detained.”

This is a threat but also one that is likely to be carried out. The junta seems desperate.
