Thailand – Yingluck’s Term Comes to Abrupt End

Via: City News – Chiang Mai

Today the Thai Constitutional Court ruled that Yingluck Shinwatra is no longer qualified to maintain her position as Thailand’s Prime Minister due to breaching Sections 266-268 of the Thai constitution.

The court ruled that because Yingluck had transferred Thawil Pliensri in 2011 to eventually be replaced by Pol. Gen. Priewpan as national police chief she had abused her powers. Appointed senator Paiboon Nititawan, along with other senators, took the case to the Constitutional Court after it was ruled in March by the Administrative Court that Thawil’s removal had been unlawful. Yingluck defended her position stating that she was legally authorised to transfer Thawil.

Nine other members of the caretaker government have also been ordered to step down.
