Police want soldiers backing them at rally

- +

The national police chief is proposing the government use the Internal Security Act (ISA) to contain the anti-government protest planned by the Pitak Siam group in Bangkok on Saturday. 

Pol Gen Adul Saengsingkaew said he would propose to the National Security Council (NSC) Monday that it implement the security act to cope with the rally.

Use of the act, if approved, would empower the prime minister to order soldiers to bring the rally under control to maintain security.
