Bangkok (VNA)
– Thailand has revoked the passports of former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who has yet to publicly emerge since she slipped out of the country two month ago.

Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai told reporters in Bangkok on October 31 that Yingluck had four passports – two personal and two diplomatic.

She was reported to be in the UK but not exactly which city, he added.

Thailand's deputy police chief Srivara Ransibrahmanakul said authorities are still working to confirm the former premier's location as they seek her extradition.

However, no country has replied about her presence, he noted.

Thailand’s Supreme Court on September 27 imposed a five-year imprisonment on the former Prime Minister over charges of negligence in a rice subsidy scheme.

Yingluck did not show up at the court. Earlier, she failed to appear for her verdict on August 25. 

Thai police on September 5 publicised evidence showing that Yingluck had fled the country.

Thailand’s authorities later issued an arrest warrant for the former premier.-VNA
