    Yingluck spotted near Cambodian border

    The investigation into the flight of former PM Yingluck Shinawatra has narrowed down to the border province of Sa Kaew after authorities say she was spotted there days before her verdict hearing where she was a dramatic ‘no show’.    Sa Kaew is 237 kilometres east of Bangkok and near the border of Cambodia.    According to The Nation, the CCTV footage doesn’t show the convoy at the border checkpoint but finishing at a military checkpoint in the province.   Deputy PM Prawit Wongsuwan says it’s the first “solid evidence” to emerge from a two-week investigation of Yingluck taking the escape route via the east.    He says the CCTV cameras could not track the vehicle’s movement any further hence there was no evidence to suggest that it had actually crossed the border into Cambodia.    Officials are trying to track down the car’s driver for interrogation
