“The focus of crackdown would be on websites spreading royal insult and undermining the national security,” he said.

Chalerm said police would be the primary unit in charge of the crackdown and relevant agencies would cooperate in the police work.

The Chalerm committee comprise 22 senior-most officials, including permanent secretaries for Defence, Interior, Information and Communication Technology, Justice. National police chief, National Security Council secretary general and National Intelligence Agency director are also on the committee members.

Chalerm said in the past, each agency worked separately resulting in the ineffectiveness to monitor the cyberspace.

Offensive websites hosted by foreign service providers would not be a problem because the authorities could block and prevent the messages being forwarded, he said.

He said his mission was to suppress royal insult, adding his committee would convene once a month to monitor the work progress.
