CHIANG RAI – Superintendent of the Mae Sai Immigration Police Col. Sit Sirikangwankul on Sunday security units in the Thai-Myanmar border zones in Chiang Rai have stepped up security in inspecting individuals and vehicles entering and leaving the country along the borders following attacks in Paris on 14 November 2015.

Police Col. Sit Sirikangwankul reported border checkpoints usually had strict measures to screen individuals and prevent smuggling of all types of illegal objects. The measures were intensified after the deadly attacks in Paris in a bid to prevent groups of people from creating violent incidents in the country, especially those who were involved in international crime, said the official.

Col. Sit added that the authorities had not found suspicious groups of people, illegal objects or irregularities in the border zones. Continuous surveillance will be maintained in the areas.
