Thailand’s Supreme Court Clears Ex-Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra of Charges


Thailand’s former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has been vindicated by a unanimous ruling from the Supreme Court.

This clears her legal battles and potentially paves the way for her return to the country after over 6 years in self-exile. 

The ruling, delivered on Monday, effectively quashes the last remaining case against her brought by the National Anti-Corruption Commission.
