NSC: Martial law along borders to go

- +

Security agencies propose the lifting of all forms of martial law in a total of 31 border provinces, keeping only the Internal Security Act (ISA) in force, amid preparations for the launch of the Asean Economic Community (AEC), National Security Council chief Paradorn Pattanatabut said on Wednesday. 

The NSC chief said the 31 border provinces include Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat in the far South.

He said the idea intends to ease concerns and inconvenience that could be caused by the special laws, which include martial law and the emergency decree, ahead of the launch of the AEC in late 2015.
