Curfew to be lifted across the country
BANGKOK: -- The commander of the Military Junta's peace keeping force Lt-Gen Thirachai Narkvanich has proposed Army Chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha to lift curfew in the country.
His proposal to Gen Prayuth, head of the National Council for Peace and Order, came as he has asked commanders of four army regions to assess the current situation in their respective areas of responsibilities if the situation has fully returned normal and curfew could be lifted.
Feedback from all commanders suggested lifting the curfew as now the situation is peaceful and there was no indication of violence.
Lt-Gen Thirachai, also commander of the First Army Region with areas of responsibility covering all central provinces and Bangkok, then proposed the NCPO chief Gen Prayuth to lift the curfew to support the junta’s “Returning Happiness to the Thai People.”
It was expected that announcement of the curfew lifting would be made late today.
