Ex-Thai PM seeking asylum in UK


Around a dozen police from the forensics unit entered the large compound carrying gloves and metal boxes, to be met by a lawyer for Yingluck and one of her bodyguards.

A legal source said that an individual has full rights to seek political asylum in a destination country that he or she has some connections with.

Former PM Yingluck Shinawatra, who fled a court ruling for criminal negligence last month, is allegedly in London and seeking political asylum in the United Kingdom, a source from her Pheu Thai Party told CNN yesterday.

"We have received preliminary unofficial reports from the Foreign Ministry indicating that she is in Dubai", said Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, who expressed annoyance over being asked about it by reporters.

The leader of Thailand's military junta said on Thursday that Yingluck Shinawatra, the prime minister he ousted three years ago, was in Dubai, where she fled last month to avoid being jailed over a rice subsidy scheme that lost billions of dollars. The law as written appears to apply to Yingluck's case.

If the DNA samples match, a charge of dereliction of duty could be filed against Pol Col Chairit, the deputy national police chief said. After applying, they will have meetings with immigration officers and have interviews with case workers.

Anonymous sources have consistently suggested that Yingluck had left Dubai for London in early September.

Georgia police officer fatally shot, suspect at large
He said he was overwhelmed by the support he received Friday from the law enforcement community in Georgia. Spangler's next appearance will be in Superior Court at a date and time yet to be determined.

His remarks came a day after the country's top court found Yingluck guilty of criminal negligence and sentenced her in absentia to five years in prison.

She disappeared from public view in the days before Aug 25, when the verdict on her case was due to be read.

Several police officers have been accused for that action.

Deputy national police chief Srivara Ransibrahmanakul said on Friday the engine of the auto had been replaced and the Customs Department did not find any document verifying its import.

Yingluck's conviction had been widely expected, as the military remains firmly in charge and the courts have a record of antipathy toward her politically influential family. They are accused of importing a vehicle without Customs approval, as an engine number of a Toyota Camry believed to have been used in transporting Yingluck, did not show in the Customs Department's records.

Police have also contacted Interpol to locate her, Srivara said.
