The Royal Thai Police is now seeking help from the International Police Organization or Interpol to find the whereabouts of former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

Deputy national police chief, Pol. Gen. Srivara Ransibrahmanakul on Monday called for a meeting with agencies involved in the operation to locate Ms. Yingluck, for whom the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Political Office Holders has issued an arrest warrant.

Pol. Gen. Srivara said that all police units across the country have been instructed to set up special teams to help look for the former PM and report back on September 1.

He added that the Immigration Bureau has been assigned to check all border checkpoints to find out which of them was used as a point of departure by Ms. Yingluck while the Royal Thai Police’s foreign division has started working with Interpol in 190 countries to find the former Premier.

The deputy national police chief also declined to comment on reports that Ms. Yingluck checked into a hotel in Bangkok on August 23 before traveling to Trat Province to enter Cambodia via Thailand’s Koh Chang, saying this is merely a theory that needs to be verified.

Meanwhile, Director-General of the Department of Special Investigation, Pol. Col. Paisit Wongmuang, said today that the government has not given any special instruction to the department to work on Ms. Yingluck’s escape from Thailand.
