Thai court says Yingluck must resign as PM

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is guilty of violating the constitution and can no longer serve as caretaker premier, Reuters reported Wednesday, citing a Thai court ruling.

The judges ruled that Yingluck “abused her position by transferring the country’s National Security Council chief to another post in 2011 so that a relative could benefit from related job moves”.

It was unclear whether Yingluck’s cabinet, or those serving around the 2011 transfer, would have to step down too, the report said.
