PM refuses to provide details on situation in deep South for the sake of national security

BANGKOK, 27 July 2012  Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has refused to reveal in-depth information on the southern situation, saying that it could affect the national security.

The Prime Minister said in the wake of increasing southern violence that it would be better not to disclose comprehensive details on the situation in the southernmost provinces as such revelation could negatively affect suppression campaigns by authorities.

Ms. Yingluck said that more police officers have already been deployed to maintain law and order during the religious month of Ramadan for the Muslims.

The Prime Minister added that it is also important for southern officials to raise understanding with local people in order to achieve long-term peace and order. The approach must be carried out simultaneously with development projects aimed at raising the standard of living of southern people. She said it would be wise to avoid the spread of messages that might be interpreted negatively and cause fear and confusion among people
