National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission (NBTC) has filed complaints with the Royal Thai Police seeking legal action against 1,631 illegal radio and TV stations. 

NBTC secretary-general Takorn Tantasit said the move follows many complaints from several agencies about  illegal broadcasts interferring with legal signals in violation of the law.

He said 167 stations have closed down and another 109 stations searched. However, the remaining of 1,355 stations were still in queue for legal processing.
