Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra says she will let herself be beaten to death as the people decide who is right or wrong, according to deputy government spokeswoman Sunisa Lertpakawat.
"I'm like a fighter in the ring, waiting for the referee to make a call that is in line with the rule of law, but the referee has yet to decide. I'll let myself be beaten to death and let the audience decide and I won't ask anyone to help me and the government, but I'll ask anyone to save our country," Lt Sunisa quoted Ms Yingluck as saying during Wednesday's cabinet meeting.
She said Ms Yingluck would like the general public to help find ways to make the country move forward and did not want to cling to power or position. However, she did not want justice to be destroyed repeatedly.
The premier also delivered a New Year's wish to the cabinet and the Thai people, saying she wanted them to be happy and receive pleasant things, not the pain and suffering that she and her family were going through, Lt Sunisa said.
