Water mismanagement case against Yingluck dismissed

A Central Administrative Court on Wednesday dismissed a case against former premier Yingluck Shinawatra for mismanagement of floodwaters, which led to severe flooding in Nakhon Pathom and nearby provinces in 2011.

Suthirak Thongwanich and 10 others plaintiffs filed the complaint against Yingluck and other members of the then flood management committee and sought compensation of Bt3.7 million

The Court ruled that Yingluck and her government had done its best to handle the flooding and prevent the water entering inner Bangkok.
