Protesters urged to spare air traffic control

- +

Department of Civil Aviation chief Woradej Harnprasert has threatened anti-government protesters with harsh penalties if they attempt to stop the work of air traffic controllers as part of plans to rally outside Aerothai HQ on Wednesday. 

Demonstrators could face prison terms of up to 15 years and be fined up to 30,000 baht for any disruption of air traffic control, the official said on Monday.

The warning comes after protesters from the Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand (NSPRT) promised to blockade the entrance to Aerothai (Aeronautical Radio of Thailand) unless caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra steps down by Wednesday.
