Yingluck’s four passports revoked by FM

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has revoked four passports, including two diplomatic passports, of former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Oct 25, said Pol Gen Srivara Ransibrahmanakul , the deputy national police chief, on Monday (Oct 30).

He said that it was Ms Yingluck’s decision to not appeal against her conviction verdict within the 30-day period which ended on Oct 27 or to appeal for an extension of the appeal period.

The Office of the Attorney-General also decided not to appeal the verdict of the Supreme Court’s criminal division for holders of political positions against Ms Yingluck on the ground that the 5-year jail term was tough enough.

Regarding the whereabouts of Ms Yingluck, Pol Gen Srivara said that the Thai Interpol had not received any report from the Interpol about the presence or movements of the former prime minister as well as any report about her request for political asylum.
