Thailand — Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has traveled to Chiang Mai to assess the problem of forest fires and haze in the province; whereas a representative has been sent in her place to acknowledge charges by the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC).

Ms Yingluck, as both Prime Minister and Defense Minister traveled from Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai province, in order to oversee the latest moves to resolve the enduring problem of haze resulting from forest fires in the northern region.

Apart from Chiang Mai officials, a crowd of local residents came out to show their support and welcome the prime minister at Chiang Mai’s International Convention and Exhibition Center — in particular supporters of the Thai Women’s Empowerment Fund.

In regard to the alleged case against the premier of dereliction of duty in the rice pledging scheme, Ms. Yingluck sent Mr. Pichit Chuenban, a member of the Pheu Thai legal team, to acknowledge the case brought against her by the NACC.
