King of Thailand Dies

Oct 13, 2016 10:17:52 PM

Today the Thai government announced the death of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand. There is now an official period of mourning of one year from 14 October 2016. Our participants have been informed the great importance of respecting the feelings and sensitivities of the Thai people at this time; to refrain from speaking negatively about the late King and royal family, and that they should behave respectfully when in public areas; if possible, wearing sombre and respectful clothing when in public; and follow the advice of the local authorities. We are monitoring the situation and will update this page as appropriate. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people in Thailand.
