1 min read

Thailand’s government says it will review hundreds of prosecutions since the 2006 military coup that led to years of political turmoil. The cases under review are expected to include prosecutions of hundreds of protesters in Bangkok in recent years, corruption charges against former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and scores of people charged with defaming the royal family.

Thailand’s Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said Tuesday that the government has agreed to review several years of political trials and an unspecified number of royal insult cases.
