PM Prayut Chan-o-cha should ask the Cambodian government to explain why former Thai prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra recently used a Cambodian passport to register a company in Hong Kong.



This despite Cambodia having repeatedly denied that Yingluck escaped through Cambodia in 2017 or received any help from the Cambodian government during and after that time.

Immediately after Thailand’s 2014 coup, the Cambodian government declared it would cooperate fully with the post-coup Thai government. It also expressed hope that both Yingluck and Thaksin would understand the Cambodian government’s situation at that time.

Now that Yingluck has used a Cambodian passport to broaden her personal and family businesses outside the borders of Thailand, how will Cambodia explain this to Thailand’s satisfaction?
