Court's deadline for under-fire PM

BANGKOK:

Thailand's Constitutional Court gave Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra until early May to defend herself against charges of abuse of power, as the central bank said the political crisis threatened its growth forecast.

The charges relate to the transfer of a security chief which opponents say was designed to benefit Shin-awatra's Puea Thai Party.
