Immigration police here in Thailand have stated that they are awaiting an order from the Royal Thai Police before they contact China regarding a recent photo that surfaced online which suggests fugitive former prime ministers Thaksin and Yingluck Shinawatra were in Beijing.
The statement made yesterday by Immigration Police Commissioner Pol Lt-General Suthipong Wongpin was in response to a viral photo that surfaced on Thai social media apparently showing the pair at a chestnut stall in a Beijing shopping mall ahead of Chinese New Year which takes place on Friday.
This will be the third time former prime minister Yingluck has been sighted since fleeing Thailand before the verdict of her trial back in August of last year.
Thaksin’s daughter, Paetongtarn also uploaded two photos of her father to social media shortly after the picture of the pair was posted online.
Since fleeing photos of Yingluck have been posted on social media twice, both times appeared to show her in London.
Commissioner Suthipong noted that it would now be the Technology Crime Suppression Divisions task to find out who originally uploaded the photos of the two fugitives to social media.
