A lawyer of ex-prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra has filed a complaint with police after her name was used to register many fake Facebook accounts.
Several Facebook pages named “Yingluck Shinawatra” are not real, Ms Yingluck said on Monday, warning netizens who are visiting the site and being persuaded to join businesses and non-business activities.
The sister of former prime minister Thaksin posted the warning on her real Facebook account and vowed to take legal action on those behind the fake ones.
“I’ve already had my lawyer complain to the police to start a probe into the wrongdoing,” wrote Ms Yingluck, also a fugitive who fled in September 2017 to evade a court verdict on the rice-pledging scheme in which she was sentenced guilty in absentia and received a five-year jail term.
