2017.08.25 06:34 autotldr Arrest warrant to be issued for former Thai PM Yingluck Shinawatra
Hundreds of Yingluck's supporters who'd been waiting outside the court for the verdict quickly dispersed once word spread the former Prime Minister hadn't appeared.
The crowds came despite a plea from Yingluck on Facebook to stay away from the court due to security concerns.
The sister of exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, Yingluck was ousted by a coup in 2014 and was later impeached by Thailand's military-appointed National Legislative Assembly.
Yingluck said the rice subsidy scheme was "Beneficial for the farmers and the country" and that claims it lost money were wrong and motivated by political bias against her.
Shortly before the military coup in 2014, a Thai court ordered Yingluck's removal from office, finding her guilty of violating the country's constitution in her reassignment of a senior security official in 2011.
Damapong is the brother of the ex-wife of Thaksin Shinawatra, Yingluck's brother, who was overthrown as Prime Minister in a military coup in 2006.
2016.08.24 05:06 autotldr No privacy on Facebook: Eight Facebook users indicted for mocking Thai junta leader
Bangkok - A Thai military tribunal on Tuesday indicted eight people with sedition for running a Facebook page that mocked the kingdom's junta chief, making them the latest victims of the regime's crackdown on dissent.
Thailand's generals have clamped down on politics and severely curbed free expression since their 2014 power grab, jailing scores of critics of the government and monarchy - often for comments posted on social media.
They now face up to seven years in prison for running a page that featured memes and doctored photos of junta leader Prayut Chan-O-Cha - the former army chief who seized power two years ago.
"The court indicts all eight and will later call them in for a plea," the group's lawyer, Winyat Chartmontree, told AFP.They have been charged with sedition and violating the kingdom's computer crime act, two broadly-worded laws that are routinely used to silence critics.
The number of computer crime, sedition and royal defamation charges have all shot up since the junta seized power in a May 2014 coup.
Critics say the junta is chiefly bent on crippling the political network loyal to the ousted government, a faction led by former premiers and siblings Thaksin and Yingluck Shinawatra.
