Reports that Yingluck has asylum status in UK need to be verified: Don

Foreign Affairs Minister Don Pramudwinai on Tuesday said his ministry would check on the veracity of news reports that former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra had gained asylum status in the United Kingdom.

Don asked people not to jump the gun and pressure the ministry to take action. 
He personally preferred to avoid using the word “asylum” in this case, as he was not certain about reports that the fugitive ex-PM had been granted such status, he added.
The minister said officials at the ministry were working on the revocation of Yingluck’s passport, but had not yet reported back to him about the progress made.
