BANGKOK — Police briefly detained two men wearing T-shirts associated with a republican group in public yesterday, according to a civil rights group.

 

Thai Lawyers for Human Rights said the pair were approached by police officers on Wednesday – a public holiday dedicated to King Rama IX – in Bangkok’s Lat Phrao district and taken to a local police station. They were reportedly released later in the day. An officer at the Lat Phrao Police Station declined to comment.
