Now that the Junta knows she has a visa for the UK, if she actually does, they can now formally start the process for extraditing her. Although I doubt that would get very far in the UK.

They wouldn't have much of a chance, it would get a political offence exception.

"Ingrained in most international extradition laws is the "political offence" exception. It allows the requested state to refuse extradition of those accused of political crimes or where that state believes the real motivation for the request is political rather than criminal.
The first British Extradition Act of 1870 declared that no-one could be surrendered if their offence was one of a political character."

You mean using the same process and effort as for the red bull son ? Or will they put more effort into this one ?

That's why I said it would not get very far.

I doubt they want her back anytime soon with an election so close. Maybe.
