BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thailand’s former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who fled the country to avoid being jailed over a rice subsidy scheme that lost billions of dollars, is in Britain, Thailand’s foreign minister said yesterday. His comments come after two photographs purporting to be of Yingluck were widely shared on social media. Thai police said they have verified one photograph of Yingluck and have confirmed her identity. Yingluck was sentenced in September in absentia to five years in prison for mismanaging the rice scheme. She has not commented publicly since fleeing Thailand in August.
