Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwan reiterated on Monday that the authorities had no way to prevent former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra from fleeing the country.
“How could the authorities know when and where she would flee? Who would know it?” Prawit said at the Defence Ministry, in response to a reporter who pointed out that the authorities had monitored Yingluck’s movements, even when she went to temples to make merit.
He said officials at the latest Defence Council meeting did not discuss Yingluck’s escape.
“Yingluck’s escape was unexpected because she earlier always insisted that she would not flee. And there are police in front of her house all the time,” he said.
Yingluck failed to hear the verdict in her negligence trial on Friday and sources disclosed she had fled to Dubai, where her brother, Thaksin, lives in exile.
