Prawit says it’s good for Yingluck to be there in Dubai

Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan said on Thursday (Sept 28) that it’s good for ex-premier Yingluck Shinawatra to be in Dubai as it has no extradition treaty with Thailand.

His comment came after Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha revealed that Ms Yingluck is now staying in Dubai, the city of the United Arab Emirates.

But he said that although the UAE has no extradition treaty with Thailand, it has assured Thailand that it has requested the fugitive ex-premier not to engage herself in any political activity, and that she must complete with its laws.

Asked to comment on a possibility that Ms Yingluck might post on her Facebook from Dubai, Gen Prawit siad Dubai has notify the Thai Foreign Ministry that it will disallow the ex-premier to make any political movement.

However Gen Prawit admitted that he remained uncertain if the ex-premier’s words are trustworthy.
