Yingluck’s escape route still a mystery
WHILE Thailand got cooperation from Cambodia and other regional countries in trying to find out the route former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra took to flee the country last week so far there has been no progress particularly with regards to Cambodia which is thought to be the main escape path, INN News said today (August 29).
National Security Council secretary-general General Thawip Netniyom however added that Thai security agencies are checking a certain route which is believed to be the one she used to flee the country and are also maintaining tighter control of natural border channels.
He added that fewer people would likely turn up to give moral support to Ms Yingluck on September 27 when the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Political Office Holders will be handing down its verdict in the rice-pledging case.
Meanwhile Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai said so far the issue of revoking Ms Yingluck’s passport has not reached his ministry with the police having not sent such a request as yet.
While officials have already prepared for it conditions and regulations on doing so have still to be considered, he added.
