Bangkok Airports in a State of Emergency

The state of emergency means, that normal law is suspended in the two airports. Public gatherings are forbidden at areas, where the authorities say so. They can also refuse access to whatever areas, they find appropriate.
 In addition the army’s commander-in-chief has an authority that is normally allocated the police to maintain public order. It is only the airports that are in a state of emergency and not the rest of Bangkok. A spokesperson from the PAD demonstrators say that the state of emergency will not make them revoke occupation of Savarnabhumi and Don Mueang.
 All tourists have already been evacuated from the airports and are accommodated at hotels in Bangkok.
