BANGKOK, 31 July 2013 – Director of the Fiscal Policy Office (FPO) Somchai Sujjapong has voiced support for the government’s decision to enforce the Internal Security Act to control political demonstrations in August, believing the law will not affect the country’s economic confidence.

Mr Somchai on Wednesday gave an interview on the use of the Internal Security Act with political rallies, saying it was unlikely that the law would worsen the already slowing economy. He also praised the government’s decision to announce the law enforcement in advance as it gave the private sector sufficient time to find ways to prevent itself from possible effects of the law.

The FPO director added that he believed there would not be violent incidents and urged everyone to closely monitor the situation.
