“Can we bring back another former prime minister?

“Don’t see this as just a domestic issue.

Although Thailand signed an extradition treaty in 1912 with Britain, Thai officials have not yet officially asked Britain to extradite former Prime Minister Yingluck because it has not been possible to determine her exact whereabouts since she stopped.

Police said Ms. Yingluck had left Dubai – where she temporarily stayed after fleeing Thailand through Cambodia in August and before arriving in the UK in September. However, Thai police have not updated the information.

`Thaksin has his own plane so he moves very quickly,` Mr. Amnart added.
