Activists' quest for plaque footage fails

CCTV cameras at Royal Plaza 'taken away'

City Hall claims it put cameras up at the Royal Plaza but then took them down on March 31 while it was upgrading traffic lights.

A group of activists attempted Wednesday to check security camera footage at the Royal Plaza to look for clues about the disappearance of the 1932 Siamese Revolution plaque, only to be told the cameras had been removed on March 31.

About 20 activists of the anti-coup New Democracy Movement showed up Wednesday at the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) to submit a letter asking permission to examine footage from closed-circuit television cameras at the Royal Plaza.

The group arrived at City Hall after they filed a complaint at Dusit district police station asking them to track down the missing plaque. Yutthapan Meechai, secretary to Bangkok governor, received their request.
