A Yingluck sighting

30 12 2017

For those who haven’t seen the news, after several months of rumor and a somewhat odd silence, Yingluck Shinawatra seems to have surfaced in London.

This recent report includes both a photo and comments by a source who claims to have visited her in London. That source said this:

A source close to Yingluck said the woman in the photo was “likely” to be the former prime minister but she could not say when it was taken.

“I’ve visited her in England once [since August] and she was well and in good spirits. It’s like she has let go of things, politically,” the source said.

Yingluck is leading a “normal” life rather than acting like someone who is on the run but she still avoids places where Thai people may recognise her, the source added.

One of the mysteries of 2017 was Yingluck’s location and her (continuing) silence.
