Former Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra was ordered on Tuesday to appear before the country’s National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) by June 30, on charges of corruption and abuse of power.
Shinawatra and all the members of her cabinet are accused of approving a compensation program for victims of political violence worth 500 million Thai baht ($14.9 million).
The money was paid to protestors who were injured or killed in political demonstrations which took place from 2005 – 2010 and their families. Up to 7.5 million baht ($220,000) was given to the families of those killed in the unrest.
