Prawit believes Yingluck had help to flee

By The Nation



Former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra greets her supporters at the Supreme Court on August 1, 2017, before making a closing statement to the court in the negligence case over her government’s rice-pledging scheme.


Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan said he believes fugitive-ex premier Yingluck Shinawatra fled the country with help from people inside Thailand.


Despite saying there had been a lot of progress in the investigation, Prawit said on Saturday that authorities had no idea who helped her escape.


“I’m convinced it [the help] was involved with people inside the country, but do not know if people outside lent her a hand or not,” he said.


It has been more than two weeks since Yingluck disappeared from public days before her verdict was due to be read in a case related to her government’s rice-pledging scheme.


Prawit said the government would make an official explanation of her flight after the investigation by police had clear information.


The investigation has been narrowed down to the border province of Sa Kaew after the release of evidence that was spotted there days before the verdict-reading date of August 25. 


Authorities on Friday made the first official confirmation that Yingluck was last seen in a sedan filmed by CCTV at a military checkpoint in Sa Kaew, a border province to Cambodia, on August 23. 


However, the CCTV footage could not track the vehicle’s movement any further, hence there was no evidence to suggest that it had crossed the border into Cambodia.

It is not out of the realm of possibility that they looked the other way while she slipped out of the country. 

How can it possibly be a debatable possibility?
