Airport security bill approved
Published: 28/01/2009 at 03:39 PM
The cabinet endorsed in principle the draft law to help maintain security at airports nationwide, senior airport official said.
According to Suvarnabhumi airport deputy director Prateep Wichittoe, the bill will give authority to Airports of Thailand (AOT) officials to disperse mobs and arrest intruders, and they can impose more fines on wrongdoers up to 10,000 baht.
At present, offenders can only be fined a maximum of 2,000 baht.
However, the new regulation will not increase the authority of security guard firms that have the concession to run security at the airport, he said.
Wing Commander Prateep said the draft law will cover all airports supervised by the AOT and relevant units, including the Council of State.
But some changes must be made to the name of the bill entitled Security and Safety of Suvarnabhumi airport bill, as the cabinet wants the bill to be imposed on all airports other than Suvarnabhumi airport as the title carries.
The change of the name will be forwarded to the cabinet for consideration, then it will be forwarded for approval from the parliament.
will offenders be invited to be guests of Klong P r e m ? hmmmmmm..........................................
I remembered seeing the Police with armed machine guns at one stage at the airport (that is before the PAD occupy it)
