Over 100 URLs blocked under Martial law

 
More than 100 URLs have been blocked since the imposition of martial law on May 20, and more than 22,000 URLs have been blocked in total since December 2011, Surachai Srisarakham, Permanent Secretary of the ICT Ministry, told media on Saturday. 
 
This was the work of the Cyber Security Operation Center (CSOC), he said. The center “asked for cooperation” from 108 local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block websites which may breach the coup makers’ orders. 
 
The CSOC was set up in December 2011 and has since blocked 22,599 URLS.
