300 cops guard court as Yingluck trial wraps up

Social media to be tracked for incitement

The Yingluck trial wrap-up at the Supreme Court Tuesday will feature around 300 police assigned to ensure no 'third party' triggers unrest.

Around 300 police officers will be sent to maintain order at the Supreme Court where former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra will deliver her closing statement Tuesday in the trial of her government's failed rice-pledging scheme.

"We are concerned about third parties triggering unrest," said deputy police spokesman Krisana Patanacharoen.
