The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) is maintaining its focus on the crackdown against influential groups while reminding state officials not to get involved in illegal practices.

According to Deputy Government Spokesperson Col Sirichan Ngathong, the NCPO acknowledged during its latest meeting the continuous progress in social reorganization and the enforcement of laws against wrongdoers. Operations to eradicate mafia activities, gambling and trade of illegal weapons are being intensified while related authorities have been ordered to give priorities to these matters as they directly threaten the livelihood of the people.

As for the mafia problem, the NCPO instructed security units in each area to monitor influential figures in their locality to make sure they do not cause trouble to residents. The officials have also been told to steer clear of nepotism and bribery and to take good care of the general public.
