BANGKOK: Thailand’s army has declared martial law to “bring back peace and order” amid growing concerns of violence after six months of political protests in the capital. So far, they have announced these bans or measures on national television:

– Protesters gathered in Bangkok cannot march outside of their protest sites.

– Ten politically affiliated satellite and cable TV stations, including those funded by pro- and anti-government protest movements, are asked to stop broadcasting until further notice.

– TV and radio stations should interrupt any regular programming for army broadcasts.

– Any broadcast or publication that could “incite unrest” is banned.

– Police should hand over reinforcements to the military if requested.

Typically, under martial law soldiers also have authority to enter and search private property and make seizures in the name of keeping peace.
