Police give military information on Yingluck's flight

BANGKOK: Police have given information involving those who helped former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra flee the country to the military, says deputy national police chief Srivara Ransibrahmanakul.

“It depends on the military, if they lodge a complaint again the person,” said Gen Srivara, without elaborating.

The general, who leads the search team trying to find Yingluck, yesterday (Sept 5) said that investigators are making steady progress, adding the information police have sent to the military is consistent with that of the armed forces.

Gen Srivara declined to reveal the details of that information, saying it is security-related and should be left to the military to explain.

But the information should be made available when the military files a complaint asking police to take legal action against those involved in helping Yingluck escape, he said.

Those involved in helping Yingluck flee the country will face charges of violating the immigration law, said Gen Srivara.

“Ms Yingluck’s whereabouts will be known only when the military lodges a police complaint,” he said. He did not specify if the military now knows where she is likely to be.

Gen Srivara said the information has also been given to Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon, who oversees national security.

Police only support the military by providing information and it is up to the military whether and when to lodge complaints, he said.

Gen Prawit said yesterday that investigators were stepping up efforts to examine footage from security cameras to piece together the details regarding Yingluck’s escape route.

Gen Prawit, also defence minister, reiterated that no police officers had a hand in Yingluck’s flight from justice.

Army chief Chalermchai Sitthisad yesterday also said there has been progress in locating Yingluck.

Investigators working on the case need some time to check footage from dozens of security cameras which recorded several vehicles which are suspected to have been used in Yingluck’s flight, said the army chief.

Asked if Yingluck had already left the country, Gen Chalermchai said there is no clear evidence confirming her escape.

The Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions issued an arrest warrant for the ex-premier after she failed to show up to hear the verdict in her case on Aug 25. It also confiscated her B30-million surety.

The court has rescheduled the final ruling to Sept 27.

Yingluck, who is on trial for ignoring alleged irregularities in the rice-pledging scheme during her tenure, is widely speculated to have fled the country, possibly via Singapore to Dubai, where her older brother Thaksin, himself ousted in 2006, is known to reside.

Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai yesterday said that the Foreign Ministry will wait for the court to deliver its ruling before moving to revoke Yingluck’s passport.

His comments were made in response to Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva’s call for the government to explain why it has not yet revoked Yingluck’s passport, as it is not necessary to wait for a court ruling or confirmation that she is not in the country.

What is security related and can not be talked about the driving off of Ms Yingluck?
More security related is how presently country's security and intelligence forces function.

How did Ms Yingluck violated thai immigration laws while she was in position of 2 thai passports, and still is (!)?
With 2 thai passports you can come and go, right? 
And if she use foreign passports abroad, other countries will not provide Thailand information about that.
Such is according international standards/agreements.

Thai police, army, foreign department, immigration, etc, etc, all play their part independently, avoiding coordination in this affair.
Many chicken in the farm, all tok tok different. Everybody happy. No body responsible.

If you read this article, it is just a excuse paper of Government officials who like to express not to be responsible for anything.

It is all like a candy box, when you shake it , it makes noise, that is all. Nothing substantial.
Still nobody 'Government' knows were Ms Yingluck is. Is that true?
