Pheu Thai party core member Chalerm Yubamrung has warned Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to stay clear of the ongoing court case between the Thai public prosecutor and Philip Morris, a giant US-based cigarette manufacturer, or he might end up in prison.

 

The maverick veteran politician claimed that, on May 10th, Foreign Minister Don Pramudvinai sent a letter to the Prime Minister urging him to exercise his executive power to end the court case in which the prosecutor has demanded 68 billion baht from the cigarette producer for alleged tax evasion.

 

Chalerm said that Foreign Minister Don did not have any understanding of legal matters and his move could place the Prime Minister in jeopardy, adding that the Prime Minister could be accused of interfering with judicial affairs.
