Inside the luxurious lives of disgraced, deposed leaders in Dubai

Former Thai prime ministers, Thaksin Shinawatra and Yingluck Shinawatra
Politics is a family business for the Shinawatra family, formerly among the richest in Thailand. Thaksin, a telecoms billionaire, was elected in 2002, but kicked out in 2008 due to corruption charges — first fleeing for London before making his way to Dubai. His younger sister Yingluck then tried her hand at politics, but was forced from office in 2014 after a coup and scandal over her government’s plan to subsidize rice growers. By 2017 she had fled, escaping before being sentenced in absentia to five years in prison on negligence charges. Thaksin has since moved into a palatial Dubai mansion, which is encircled by Thai orchids and where he has six Thai servants on call, while Yingluck obtained Serbian citizenship, according to The New York Times.

My own commentary:

Not exactly a good list to be on with other unsavory characters
