Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra will tomorrow meet the legal team representing Thailand in the verbal hearing on the Preah Vihear temple case.



PM’s secretary Suranand Vejjajiva said that during the meeting at 2pm at the Government House, the legal team will brief the prime minister of the hearing at the International Court of Justice last week. They will also discuss what are other legal options, while Thailand is waiting for the Hague’s decision.

"There will also be a discussion whether we need to issue a statement to summarise the hearing result, as some Thais may not have continuously monitored the hearing," he said.

He said that Yingluck should be able to perform her duty tomorrow. She suffered from food poisoning throughout this weekend.
