CHON BURI, June 16 – Local police are preparing the readiness to monitor security during the next ‘retreat’ cabinet meeting at a Pattaya hotel on June 17-19.
Chon Buri Provincial Police commander Pol Maj Gen Jamnong Srisakul said 1,030 police officers are to be deployed at the meeting venue and stationed along traffic routes.
Protesters to submit letters concerning their problems are expected to turn up. In case the number is overwhelming, police from nearby provinces can be called upon as reinforcement. They will be allowed to gather at an area prepared outside the hotel.
The commander said he was certain the on-site cabinet meeting would be conducted peacefully and not affect tourists in the area.
The Chon Buri retreat is the fifth upcountry cabinet meeting following Chiang Mai in January, Udon Thani in February, Phuket in March, and Kanchanaburi in May.
