Cabinet's decision on constitution referendum dashes likelihood of early return to democracy

Former Thai prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra was banned on Tuesday from traveling overseas at the start of her trial on negligence charges, the latest in a number of cases her supporters say are part of an attempt to tighten the junta's grip on power.

Yingluck was forced from office a year ago after Thailand's Constitutional Court found her guilty of abuse of power. Weeks later, the military staged a coup that removed the remnants of her government.
