Thailand's premier is set to skip an anti-corruption panel hearing Thursday into negligence charges that could lead to her removal from office, as she grapples with a four-month deadly political crisis. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is fighting for her political survival as pressure mounts on several fronts -- in the streets, the courts and from the National Anti-Corruption Commission.
