Thai SC issues arrest warrant for former PM Yingluck


Thailand’s Supreme Court issued an arrest warrant for former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, the court said on Friday. The country’s deputy prime minister said earlier that it was possible Yingluck, who was ousted by a military coup in 2014, has fled the country. Thailand’s immigratio­n police chief said he had no informatio­n to suggest she has left Thailand through the country’s border checkpoint­s. Yingluck faces up to 10 years in prison if found guilty in a negligence case brought by the ruling junta that centres on her role in a rice subsidy scheme for farmers that resulted in multibilli­on dollar losses.
