Yingluck 'out of politics now'

Former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra yesterday popped up in a newly-launched luxury shopping complex in the heart of Bangkok, a sign that shows she has resumed life away from politics.

"She is now living a normal life, sending her son to school and going shopping," a source close to her confirmed yesterday. Yingluck was sighted at Central Embassy yesterday, and was seen a few days earlier shopping at Crystal Park.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source said Yingluck had not engaged in political activity in recent weeks. The source firmly denied reports that Yingluck sent a note to Chaturon Chaisang to express moral support.

The former education minister had been behind bars for several days after defying a summons from the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO).

Yingluck is among high-profile politicians who have reported to the NCPO.
