BANGKOK (AP) — Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has sacked two Cabinet members, including one who was widely reported to have unsuccessfully plotted for him to lose a parliamentary no-confidence vote last week. Deputy Agriculture Minister Thammanat Prompao was deeply controversial even before the alleged mutiny attempt for being imprisoned for four years in Australia in the 1990s in a case involving heroin smuggling. He has also faced a claim that his doctorate in public administration was fraudulently earned. Thammanat, who has rejected all accusations of wrongdoing, won his Cabinet position by being a political power broker.
