Petition against Yingluck dismissed

- +

The Supreme Administrative Court on Monday upheld the lower court's decision to reject a petition against former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra and two of her cabinet members for passing a resolution to pay compensation to people affected by political violence between Sept 19, 2006 and May 2010. 

The petition, filed by former Democrat Party MP Sathit Pitutecha and two other former MPs, alleged the resolution was illegal, unfair and discriminatory.

It alleged the compensation was made to people without checking to prove whether they had taken part in the political violence while some of those who were really affected were not paid.
