Thai caretaker PM denies abuse of power allegation

BANGKOK, May 6 (Xinhua) -- Thai caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Tuesday denied the allegation that she had abused power in a personnel change.

While defending herself in the Constitutional Court, Yingluck said she did not violate any law or receive any benefit by transferring Thawil Pliensri from the post as secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC) in 2011.

The transfer was ruled unlawful by the Supreme Administrative Court in March, and Thawil has already been reinstated as the NSC chief.

The Constitutional Court is expected to deliver a verdict on Thursday regarding a petition filed by a group of senators accusing Yingluck of violating the constitution by giving the " unlawful" order.

Should the court convict her of the charge, she and her cabinet will be removed from office.
