Tearful Yingluck Seeks Justice for Her Shinawatra Family

Tearful PM seeks justice for her Shinawatra family

Tearful PM could hardly control her emotion, bursting  into tears

BANGKOK – Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra burst into tears during a press conference at the Army Club after the first meeting of her caretaker cabinet late today.

The press conference was held to assess the ongoing anti-Thaksin demonstrations and to prepare her cabinet for the caretaker role after the dissolution of parliament.

She insisted on staying on the caretaker role until a new elected government coming into office, and called on protesters to end the protests and return homes as now a general election has been set on February 2 next year.

At one point hen she was asked by reporter on one of the demands of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee that calling on members of the Shinawatra to leave the country, Ms Yingluck could hardly control her emotion, bursting  into tears.

She said she also had feeling same as those at the protests but would like that they should not accuse all members of the Shinawtra family.

She admitted that she has now retreated so far and did not know where to retreat further.

She asked sympathy from protesters for her family saying “we’re all fellow Thais, and why do we have to hurt one another.”

She asked if the protesters wanted her to not even set foot on the Thai soil.

She then left the press conference immediately without further questions.
