#Leaflets #attacking #National #Council for #Peace and #Order
Leaflets attacking the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) were strewn in front of the Army Headquarters along the Ratchadamnern Nok road early Friday morning.
The leaflets were discovered by street sweepers of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration who worked early in the morning to clean the road.
The leaflets were picked up by the sweepers on the road from Yaek Jor Por Ror to the Makkasan Rangsan bridge.
The leaflet in A4 paper size carried different messages in large letter fonts attacking the military junta chief.
Security officials and the police are checking surveillance cameras around the areas to hunt down the people responsible.
Initially the police said ill-intentioned people in a running vehicle with unknown licence plate spread the leaflets on the road at about 5.00 a.m. today.
They are tracing the vehicle at other escape routes to bring the people for questionings.
