Yingluck On The Run?

Recommended Posts

Prayut asks UK to confirm Yingluck’s location

 

Thailand has asked the United Kingdom to confirm that ex-PM Yingluck Shinawatra is residing in Britain, following the release last week of photos purportedly showing her shopping in London, PM Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha said yesterday.

 

Prayut added that he has no further information on the photographs or her whereabouts.

 

Yingluck vanished from Thailand last August before she was expected to hear the final verdict in a case stemming from her government’s rice-pledging scheme The verdict was postponed for a month, when she was sentenced to five years imprisonment.

 

Various sources have pointed to the UK is a likely refuge for Yingluck, given that her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, owns a residence and several businesses there. Last week, local media released two photos of a woman shopping in London and Oxford. While the woman’s features are not clearly seen, she appeared to resemble Yingluck.

 

A day later, Facebook page @secret100million posted a photo showing a woman who looks like Yingluck and a boy, who resembles her 15-year-old son Supasek Amornchat, in a shopping mall in London.

 

Thaksin and his children spent their New Year holidays in Japan. They have not commented on the photos.

Is Yingluck really wanted?

 

JUNTA’S LACK OF EFFORT SUGGESTS THEY WOULD PREFER HER TO STAY OVERSEAS

 

MORE THAN four months after fugitive former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is known to have fled the country, the powers-that-be seem to still be in the dark over her current whereabouts. But, are they really unaware and are they serious about finding out where she has been in hiding?...

THAILAND WILL SEEK YINGLUCK EXTRADITION FROM LONDON - {or not}

 

BANGKOK — The foreign minister confirmed Tuesday morning that fugitive former premier Yingluck Shinawatra was in London and said Bangkok would seek her extradition.

 

Don Pramudwinai, minister of foreign affairs, confirmed the news after the media published three leaked photos which appeared to show Yingluck in London. Don refused to say whether the Thai government would lodge any protest against Yingluck’s much-speculated asylum seeking process.

 

Don told reporters that he has known Yingluck whereabouts since September, when he was informed by a minister from the British foreign office. He did not name the minister, but the timing coincides with meetings between the junta and Mark Field, foreign minister for Asia.

 

It was unclear whether Don had notified his superiors in the military government such as junta leader Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha, who has routinely denied knowing where Yingluck is.

 

Don added that though it’s unclear how Yingluck entered the United Kingdom, he thinks she likely used one or more foreign passports since all her Thai travel documents had been revoked.

 

He said the government would try to seek Yingluck’s extradition, but insisted her presence in London would not affect relations between the two nations.

 

Yingluck fled Thailand before the Supreme Court’s Section for Political Office Holders in September found her guilty of malfeasance and sentenced her in absentia to five years in prison over corruption in a rice-subsidy scheme managed during her tenure as prime minister.
