Tourism Campaigns Stimulating Thailand's High Season, Says NCPO

Wednesday, September 9, 2015
BANGKOK: The National Council for Peace and Order Situation Monitoring Centre would like to update the general public on the progress of the investigation.

The testimony of Mr Yusufu has led to his re-enactments of the crime in three areas on September 8. Today, the police took Mr Yusufu to conduct further re-enactments in two other areas.

Officials have utilised crucial information, namely; testimonies of suspects; evidence from CCTV footage; results from forensic examinations, as well as witnesses who can confirm that the suspects were involved with the incidents at Ratchaprasong Intersection.

With regards to testimonies in other aspects, relevant personnel are further investigating clues, information and other evidence to support the testimonies of the suspects.

Information in all respects needs to be in agreement to ensure confidence in the work undertaken by relevant agencies.

Although the incidents at Ratchaprasong have inevitably affected the tourism industry for a period of time, close cooperation of all parties have led to the recovery of the industry.

The Ministry of Tourism and Sports has launched campaigns and activities to encourage, build confidence and stimulate the Thai tourism industry in the coming High Season.

It is believed that these will eventually result in more tourists travelling into Thailand.

Request for Public Cooperation

FROM THE re-enactment of the crime as a component of the suspect's confession, it is evident that the suspect was able to purchase chemicals and equipment in making the explosives from any general fertiliser and chemical supply store.

Thus, in order to prevent those with malicious intent from getting these components easily, we would like to request that store owners implement preventive measures against incidents, for example, install CCTV cameras within your premises, be observant of and remember any suspicious customers, notice anyone purchasing chemical fertiliser which can be used as explosive components, such as ammonia nitrate or potassium chlorate.

Furthermore, as the Royal Thai Police and NCPO Situation Monitoring Centre have been reporting the progress of the investigation, we would like to request that should the public have any information or clues concerning the suspects, for example, if you have seen the suspects in the arrest warrants, or if you have provided accommodation or services to the suspects or anyone suspicious, please inform the nearest police or military officials, or call the 1515 Hotline.
