PM rejects martial law talk
Prayut shrugs off five-day rally threat
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Wednesday reiterated that martial law will not be invoked to quell the anti-government protests, saying the normal existing measures are enough to deal with those who break the law.
Asked by reporters about martial law, Gen Prayut said he had not considered it, and current laws were enough to handle the protesters.
He made the remarks after a meeting of the US-Asean Business Council at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The prime minister said he explained the protests to the meeting. “In a democratic world, I cannot get everyone to agree with me. All I can do is to find a way to move forward together to avoid problems in the future,” he said.
