CAPO set up complaint centers during rallies


BANGKOK, 10 January 2014 The Center for Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO) has set up complaint centers for those affected by the mass protest on January 13. 

According to Deputy Prime Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul, Bangkok residents whose livelihood might be impacted or property damaged as a result of the siege next Monday can lodge a complaint at the centers in Bangkok and other provinces.

Meanwhile, crowd control police officers will be given bulletproof shields prior to the rally in a bid to better protect themselves while on duty. More shields are currently in production.

The move has been prompted by the deaths of police officers during previous clashes with protesters at the Thai-Japanese sports stadium.
