The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has denied reports that former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra had asked it to postpone her return from overseas from Sunday to Aug 31.
Ms Yingluck had not assigned representatives to send her request to council leader Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha through the NCPO secretariat as some media reports had claimed, said Lt Gen Kampanat Ruddit, director of the NCPO's Centre for Reconciliation and Reform.
The former premier's scheduled return date of Aug 10 so far remained unchanged, said Lt Gen Kampanat.
