      • Did the Thai court tell us she’s stupid?
        • The Central Administrative Court ruled today that an order, issued by the Finance Ministry in 2016, demanding that former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra pay 35-billion-baht compensation to the state for losses incurred in her administration’s scandalous government-to-government rice deals.

        The court reasoned that the irregularities occurred at the operational level, while Yingluck was only involved in the memoranda of understanding for the trade agreements and that she had nothing directly to do with actual transactions.

        The court also said that the Finance Ministry had no evidence to prove that Yingluck had done anything which had damaged the state.

        On Monday, the Central Administrative Court ordered former commerce minister Boonsong Teriyaphirom, former deputy commerce minister Poom Saraphol and three former senior commerce officials to pay the Thai state 14.7 billion baht in compensation for damage caused to the state by the G-to-G rice deals.

        The three other former officials are Manas Soiploy, former director-general of Foreign Trade Department, Tikumporn Nartvoratat, former deputy director-general of Foreign Trade Department, Akkarapong Teepwatchara, former director of Foreign Trade Office.

        Meanwhile, Vicha Mahakun, a former member of the National Anti-Corruption Commission, said today that the Central Administrative Court’s ruling is not yet final, because the government can appeal the decision to the Supreme Administrative Court.

        Dr. Warong Dechgitvigrom, acting leader of the Thai Pakdee party, and the “whistleblower” who exposed the rice scandal, said he was surprised by the ruling, but will respect it, while urging the government to appeal.: https://www.thaipbsworld.com/court-s...nd-april-2021/

              She probably considers the source and doesn't take it terribly serious.
              Though, she [and her kin] must be feeling homesick and deprived of their native culture.

                    • Main points………

                      Yingluck verdict opens another can of worms in the rice-pledging saga

                      Supporters of Yingluck Shinawatra are cheering an April 2 ruling by the Administrative Court, claiming it clears the fugitive former prime minister of all legal responsibility for her government’s graft-plagued rice-pledging scheme.

                      The court’s findings

                      The Central Administrative Court ruled that Yingluck alone had no authority to repeal the rice-pledging scheme since it was a government policy that had been announced before Parliament.

                      As head of government, Yingluck was responsible for general supervision of the project – not irregularities regarding the bogus government-to-government sale, said the ruling.

                      The court also cleared Yingluck of negligence as her government had taken measures to prevent irregularities related to rice-pledging.

                      The court also pointed to a lack of clear evidence to prove that Yingluck had issued instructions or was directly involved in the bogus sale.

                      Jumping to conclusions

                      Yingluck’s supporters were quick to conclude that the verdict cleared her of any guilt over the rice scheme and demanded that “justice be returned” to the former premier.

                      Interpretation challenged

                      However, Yingluck supporters’ interpretation of the verdict is being disputed by observers, who say the ruling did not cover criminal litigation related to the rice-pledging scheme.

                      Prof Vicha Mahakun, a former member of the National Anti Corruption Commission, said on April 2 that the Yingluck verdict was related to civil damages demanded by the state, noting that the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Political Office Holders “had issued a clear ruling” separately against Yingluck.

                      On September 27, 2017, the Supreme Court found the ex-PM guilty of criminal negligence in the rice-pledging scheme and sentenced her in absentia to five years in prison. Yingluck fled the country one month before that verdict and has been living in self-exile overseas since August 2017.

                      Conservative politician Warong Dechgitvigrom said “it is unbelievable” that Pheu Thai’s Phumtham cannot tell the difference between criminal and civil litigation.

                      “The criminal case was final and the penalty was five years’ imprisonment. If you think Yingluck was not guilty, why did she escape?” Warong asked. “They are separate cases and you can’t use the new verdict to disprove the old one. The prison sentence still stands.”

                      He added that civil ruling at the Administrative Court was not yet final and he expected relevant state agencies to appeal to the highest court.

                      On the run ‘for ever’

                      The criminal case against Yingluck is considered final as both parties – her lawyers and public prosecutors – allowed the 30-day deadline to pass without filing an appeal against the September 2017 verdict.

                      Thai authorities are now duty-bound to enforce the court verdict by hunting Yingluck down so she can serve her sentence.

                      If the ex-PM chooses the life of a fugitive, she will be on the run for the rest of her life, said Surasak Trirattrakul, a senior public prosecutor in charge of cases involving the rice-pledging scheme. The law was amended in September 2017 to freeze the statute of limitations while a convict is on the run, he added.

                      Asset seizure suspended

                      The April 2 verdict means the Legal Execution Department’s move to confiscate Yingluck’s assets is suspended for at least 30 days – the deadline for the Finance Ministry to appeal the case.

                      Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam, the government’s legal expert, confirmed it would lodge an appeal with the Supreme Administrative Court.

                      Meanwhile, the seizure and auction of Yingluck’s assets is suspended, Wissanu said. However, the seized property will not be returned to her unless the highest court rules otherwise, he added.

                      Less than Bt100 million worth of Yingluck’s properties has been seized so far, including her mansion in Bangkok’s Soi Yothin Pattana, according to Wissanu.: https://www.thaipbsworld.com/yingluc...pledging-saga/
