Bangkok (VNA) – The Thai Royal Police affirmed that there has been no evidence of Thai citizens’ support for the self-claimed Islamic States (IS) despite statistics on access to this organisation’s websites from Thailand.

Spokesman of the Thai Royal Police Piyayan Pingmuang said that some Internet users in Thailand follow the terrorist group’s social networks but have yet to conduct illegal actions. He also declared that the country has enough measures to prevent terrorist attacks.

Deputy National Police Chief Srivarah Rangsipramanakul stated on the same day that no citizens are found to provide financial support for IS as well as there is no connection of recent violence in Thailand’s south region with activities of the terrorist group.

Earlier, Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha directed security agencies to investigate a report of the Australian Federation Police saying that some Thais were involved with IS by seeking information on the social networks and websites of the group.

Accordingly, he ordered a thorough investigation into the case as a preventive security measure, given that IS-initiated attacks in many countries have threaten lives of thousands of people.-VNA
