Pheu Thai lawyer affirms Yingluck’s return to Thailand after her European trip


BANGKOK, 8 August 2014 – Singtong Buachum, a member of Ms. Yingluck Shinawatra’s entourage on her trip to Europe, gave an assurance that the former Prime Minister would return to Thailand by August 10th.

Mr. Singtong, who is also a member of the Pheu Thai Party’s legal team, also assured that the former Prime Minister would fight her case for dereliction of duty to prevent losses in the rice-pledging scheme at the Supreme Court.

The Pheu Thai lawyer stated that he is now preparing necessary evidence and documents to defend Ms. Yingluck, after the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) has refused Ms. Yingluck’s request to bring additional witnesses for the case.
