Tension is expected to build after the Constitutional Court yesterday agreed to rule on the status of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra over the removal order she issued against National Security Council (NSC) chief Thawil Pliensri. 

Several government figures are warning the court's decision to consider if Ms Yingluck has breached the constitution in the Thawil case will bring the country closer to a violent confrontation. They say the court's rulings are not quite in line with the charter.
