The House of Representatives has requested that four companies of about 600 metropolitan police officers are drafted in to maintain law and order outside parliament when it reopens for ordinary sessions on Aug 1, Deputy House Speaker Wisuth Chainaroon said on Monday.
He said about 100 parliament guards would be responsible for security inside the parliament compound, adding that all people and vehicles entering and leaving the parliament compound will be subject to searches for weapons and explosives.
He said maximum security measures would be taken to make sure that MPs are not obstructed from entering parliament on Aug 1.
