Interpol asked to issue Blue Notice on Yingluck

The Royal Thai Police has asked the Interpol to issue a Blue Notice for its 190 member countries to find the whereabouts of fugitive former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, deputy police spokesman Pol Col Krisna Pattanacharoen said on Saturday (Sept 30).

Pol Col Krisna said that after the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions found Ms Yingluck guilty of neglect of duty in the rice-pledging scheme and sentenced her to five years in jail without suspension, the RTP has ordered all units to look for her.

An arrest has been sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to revoke her passport.

Moreover, the Interpol has been asked to issue a Blue Notice for its 190 member countries to find Ms Yingluck’s whereabouts.

The RTP has used all channels available in the hunt for Ms Yingluck, the spokesman said.
