Thailand's Constitutional Court on September 30 ruled PM Prayuth Chan-Ocha had not exceeded the maximum eight years allowed in office, clearing the way for his return from a five-week suspension.

Mr Prayuth ruled as head of a military council after he overthrew an elected government when he was army chief in 2014. Mr Prayuth, 68, had been suspended from office while the court deliberated the case.
