Thai court reaffirms decision to reject case on PM's April leave
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2006-09-02 16:08
The Supreme Administrative Court of Thailand on Friday reaffirmed the decision of the lower court to dismiss a case which sued caretaker Prime Minister Thaksin Shinwatra for making unlawful leave of absence in April.

The Supreme Administrative Court reaffirmed the ruling of the Central Administrative Court that the co-plaintiffs -- Nitithorn Lamlua and Nakhon Chompuchart, who are members of Law Society of Thailand's human rights committee -- were not affected party.

The Supreme Administrative Court ruled that the general members of the public were not affected by Thaksin's leave so they could not file any suit related to his leave.

The two lawyers filed a suit saying the Cabinet had unlawfully issued a resolution to endorse Thaksin's leave of absence on April 5.

The two alleged that since Thaksin had made unlawful leave of absence, he should be regarded as having lost his status as prime minister so the court should order him to return his salaries since April to the state.

The two also asked the court to issue an injunction to prevent Thaksin from running his office as the prime minister.

But the Central Administrative Court earlier dismissed the case on ground that the two lawyers were not affected party. The two appealed against the ruling but the supreme court reaffirmed it Friday.
