Thailand Prime Minister files criminal case against the Attorney General
Former Thai Prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra filed a criminal case against Attorney General Trakul Winitnaiyaphak, who were alleged of abusing he power and causing damage to others and interfering with her case. In February 2014, Shinawatra was charged with neglect of duty relating to management of the country’s multi-billion dollar rice-subsidy program. She argues that the prosecutors did not adequately investigate facts in her case in accordance with the Criminal Procedures Code, and illegally submitted 60,000 pages of evidence that were not used in the investigation. Supporters of Shinawatra say the courts are biased and issued unfair rulings in her case, but the prosecutors deny this and added that they believe her rice-subsidy program was a scheme to gain votes.
