Bangkok Ports Operational Despite State of Emergency

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Operations at Bangkok's ports and airports are continuing as normal and without any disruption, despite the announcement this week that a State of Emergency has been imposed.

The ruling allows the police and security forces to take action if necessary by introducing measures such as travel restrictions and curfews. However, to date, apart from some isolated incidents the largely peaceful nature of protests being staged in the city has not necessitated such action.

There are currently seven main points throughout Bangkok where protests are being held, and where the roads are blocked to prevent any vehicles passing. The road blocks are only in limited areas, however, and so far have had no impact of GAC's operations.

Further, the Customs Department is functioning as before, as are all airports and seaports.
