Court says Yingluck committed conflict of interest by giving post of police chief to relative

The Constitutional Court ruled Wednesday that caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra committed a conflict of interest by making the post of national police chief vacant for her relative.

In the ruling, which was still being read, the court called Pol Gen Priewphan Damapong Yingluck's relative although the prime minister argued that her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, had divorced Priewphan's sister, Potjaman Na Pombejr.
