BANGKOK, May 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Thailand’s authorities did not detain any foreign citizen for violation of the curfew introduced in the kingdom since May 22, Russian Honorary Vice-Consul in Pattaya Viktor Kriventsov told ITAR-TASS on Monday.

“Every morning I call to representatives of local authorities. However, there is no information that not only Russians, but also foreign citizens in general were detained over violation of the curfew,” Kriventsov said. He also noted that even after the curfew started in Pattaya people kept walking freely in the streets bypassing policemen without being detained. “All bars, restaurants and shops actually do not work after 10pm. In these conditions the nightlife has moved to hotel lobbies and restaurants which do not come under effect of restrictions,” Kriventsov said.

The Russian Consulate noted that around 40 thousand Russians were spending holidays in Thailand.

A military coup occurred in Thailand on May 22. Civil government was ousted from power, the local Senate was disbanded and the effect of constitution was suspended. The military also introduced censorship in media and the Internet, announced a curfew from 10pm until 5am and banned any demonstrations.
