BANGKOK, 3 July 2014,  - The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has given the nod to 48 community radio stations in the South to go back on air during the Ramadan holy month, under certain conditions. 

The Region 4 Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) yesterday held a meeting with the local military officials at Sirinthon Military Camp in Pattani Province, discussing details of the NCPO’s order giving the green light to 48 community radio stations to go back on air during the Muslim fasting month.
