The United Nations human rights office has voiced deep concern at the Thai army coup and said that martial law and military orders being imposed may infringe on fundamental freedoms.
"We remind the authorities of Thailand's obligations under international human rights law, which strictly limit the application of emergency powers, said UN human rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani said.
"We urge the authorities to take all necessary measures to ensure the fundamental human rights are respected."
