Bangkok, 18 March, 2014 – The caretaker Thai Cabinet has today decided to end the 60-day state of emergency that has been imposed on Bangkok, Nonthaburi, Bang Phli district in Samut Prakan, and Lat Lum Kaeo district in Pathum Thani since 22 January, 2014.

The revocation of the emergency decree will be effective from tomorrow (19 March 2014). In order to ensure peace and order in Bangkok and nearby provinces, the caretaker Cabinet has agreed to invoke the Internal Security Act, also effective from tomorrow.

Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik, Governor of TAT said, “While the state of emergency has caused little inconvenience to travellers to Thailand, its lifting is a sign that things are fast returning to normal in Bangkok and visitors can look forward to travelling round the Thai capital with ease, as well as to the provinces for next month’s Songkran festival.”

It should be stressed that over the course of the protests, all shops, hotels and shopping malls in Bangkok and throughout Thailand remained open as usual and were always easily accessible via the BTS Skytrain or MRT subway if not by normal transportation systems including plane, train, bus or car.
