"The Thai Constitutional Court is expected to deliver a verdict Thursday on a petition filed by a group of senators who accused Yingluck of violating the constitution by giving the unlawful order."
Bangkok, May 6 - Thai caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra Tuesday denied an allegation that she abused power for personal benefits.

While defending herself before 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 - in 2011, Xinhua reported.

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

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

If the court finds her guilty to the charges, she and her cabinet will be removed from office.
