They have been in contact with Interpol and asked it to issue a preliminary blue notice, which asks foreign countries to help locate wanted people, and red notice, which is effectively an international arrest warrant.

However, Kritsana, said the international agency had not yet issued a red because it believed its Thai counterparts had not submitted adequate evidence.

The police need to file more evidence as instructed, including the full verdict in Yingluck’s case in English, Kritsana said.

He said police had not yet received confirmation in regard to information that Yingluck is now in London, nor did it know about claims that she had sought asylum in the United Kingdom.

Thai police have also been in contacted with UK authorities, and would proceed with every needed legal procedure.
