More military trials for civilians -- it's Thailand's turn

The Bangkok Post reports:
The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) decided on Sunday to use a martial court to prosecute offenders in another move to reinforce its control over the political situation as more protests against the coup took place in Bangkok. 
The article notes that "civilian" courts are open.  So it appears that special offenses committed by civilians are intended to be covered -- "people committing crimes, facing lèse majesté charges, creating security threats and defying its orders."
