Thai police offer reward for evidence on anti-coup protesters

Thai police on Monday offered a financial reward to anyone providing photographic or video evidence to help them convict anti-coup protesters in an intensifying crackdown against critics of last month’s military takeover.

‘Police will reward people who take photos of demonstrators making any form of anti-junta protest,’ deputy national police chief Somyot Poompanmoung told AFP.

‘Any person who submits a photo or video to us which can be used as legal evidence to convict a protester will get a reward of USD 15 for each submission,’ he said, adding that the police were also looking for tip-offs on anti-coup protests on social media such as Instagram and Facebook.
