Rally guards trained how to be polite

- +

The People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) is training 300 guards to boost security and "maintain politeness” when checking people at its Lumpini rally site. 

This follows a series of complaints from park-goers and people passing the venue about being spoken to rudely and manhandled during searches of their belongings. There have also been allegations of assault.

They will be taught a range of skills including self-defence, security duties and manners when asking to inspect park-goers' belongings, according to PDRC co-leader Thaworn Senneam.
