Soldiers from the three armed forces will continue to man security checkpoints in Bangkok and nearby provinces, despite the emergency decree being lifted and replaced by the Internal Security Act (ISA).
Maj Gen Warah Boonyasit, commander of the army's 1st Infantry Division, said 176 military checkpoints set up in areas previously covered by the special security law would remain unchanged. However, some adjustments may be made to take account of the improving security situation, he said.
Media reports have indicated that the Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO) is considering cutting the number of checkpoints.
