Bangkok, Thailand (CNN) — An emergency decree in Bangkok and three provinces has been extended, a Thai government spokesman said Tuesday.

The decree allows authorities to detain suspects without formal charges up to 90 days.

The emergency rule was imposed in April after anti-government protests crippled much of Thailand.

The extension of the emergency rule also come after another protest in September where more than 10,000 anti-government demonstrators gathered in the heart of Bangkok’s shopping district to mark the fourth anniversary of a bloodless coup that ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
