Supporters of the red shirt movement say the junta has especially targeted pro-Shinawatra red shirts.
Instead of pale shirts, our national gatekeepers now wear extremely dark ''border blue’’ shirts – a shade so dark as to seem almost black even under airport lighting – with epaulettes, trousers, jumpers and the rest all in precisely the same shade.
We will ask for bail,” Winyat Chatmoontree, a lawyer for the movement, told reporters.
Voters approved a military-backed constitution in the referendum, a result analysts said was driven by a desire to see greater political stability after years of unrest.
“Although subjects ranked both uniforms similarly as good, honest, helpful, and competent, the lighter coloured sheriff’s uniform rated noticeably higher for warmth and friendliness.
Because the sheriff’s uniform only has a light-coloured shirt, with the pants still very dark, a half-dark uniform sends a better message than the all dark blue or black uniform.” Another study has suggested that a Darth Vader-dark ensemble is likely to muddy the behaviour of those who wear it.
