State offices still working despite protests

In spite of rising political tension in Bangkok over the weekend,
government sources state that all official services, including Customs and
port authorities, are working as normal today (Monday 2 December).

However, according to reports in the local press, anti-government
protesters are now targeting the Metropolitan Police Bureau, Government
House and Parliament and other state offices could face rallies. Protests
in other provinces are also possible.

These protests may have an impact on operations such as customs clearance,
transportations and other services provided by affected state agency
offices.
