Thailand's Deputy PM says Thaksin and Yingluck now in Japan

Previously former PM Yingluck had been pictured several times in London, UK, where Thaksin allegedly owns several businesses and residences.

Yingluck Fled Thailand last year before a court delivered a verdict relating to her time in office and her government’s rice-pledging scheme, in her absence she was sentenced to five years in prison.

It was announced previously that the Thai government had revoked all of Yingluck’s passports leading many to speculate she must be traveling with a passport issued from another nation.
