Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's lawyer yesterday lodged a complaint with Dusit police, alleging a Thai-language newspaper cartoonist defamed her. 

Norawich Lalaeng, the lawyer, also accused Thai Rath cartoonist Somchai Katanyutanan, 72, better known as "Chai Ratchawat", of making public his defamatory messages and violating the Computer Crime Act by posting them on his Facebook page.

Mr Somchai posted on his personal page his opinions about Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's controversial speech delivered in Mongolia this week.
