Paradorn: No sign of a coup


BANGKOK 1 April 2014  — There is no sign of a coup d’etat from the military camp, reports National Security Council Secretary-General, Lt Gen Paradorn Pattanatabut. 

A meeting of military leaders on April 2nd aims to assess the turmoil and strengthen cooperation between military personnel and police who must work together closely, he added.

At present, it is not necessary to declare martial law.

Meanwhile, he believes that no violence or confrontation is likely to occur during the opposing mass rallies of the protest groups, PDRC and UDD on April 5th, since the red shirt supporters will gather outside the Bangkok area.
