    Yingluck trial: Thais seek ex-PM after she fails to show for verdict

    Yingluck trial: Thais seek ex-PM after she fails to show for verdict
    19 minutes ago

    From the section Asia

    The rice scheme was one of several controversies which overshadowed Ms Yingluck's time in office

    Thailand has tightened border controls after former PM Yingluck Shinawatra failed to show up for the verdict in her trial over a rice subsidy scheme.

    Deputy PM Prawit Wongsuwan said it was possible she had already fled.

    Lawyers for Ms Yingluck, who is charged with negligence, said she was unable to attend court because she was ill.

    Yingluck trial: Ex-PM 'flees Thailand' ahead of trial verdict

    Former Thai PM Yingluck Shinawatra has fled abroad, sources say, ahead of a verdict in her trial over a rice subsidy scheme.

    Sources close to her party say she made the decision to leave unexpectedly, shortly before the verdict was due in Bangkok.

    Ms Yingluck failed to appear at the Supreme Court in Bangkok on Friday for the verdict on charges of negligence.

    The court issued an arrest warrant for her and confiscated her bail.

    Her lawyers told the court she had been unable to attend because she was ill.

    But the court rejected this and delayed the verdict to 27 September.

    Sources within Ms Yingluck's Puea Thai Party told Reuters that she had "definitely left Thailand" but did not give details of her whereabouts.

    In another development, a former Thai minister also charged in connection with the rice subsidy scheme was jailed for 42 years on Friday.

    Boonsong Teriyapirom was found guilty of falsifying rice deals between Thailand and China.

    As if this process was ever going to be fair, this was carefully planned with the sole target to make a end to the "Shinawatra dynasty". If YS fled, good on her. Now with the junta's biggest threat gone, hopefully, Thailand can move on.

    Move on where though, and to what sort of Thailand? Also, the Shinawata family are not the only threat to the Junta-and maybe even not their biggest. This has been nothing more than a personal vendetta by the elite at public expense.

    Hi

    Can't find Yingluck
    Can't find red bull grandson
    Can't find a rich old monk

    but can sure find an old mom and pop who picked mushrooms blame them for cutting protected wood and put in jail for years.
