Thailand's Supreme Court kicked out the Prime Minister effective as of 2011, also knocking out nine ministers. It looks very much like Honduras a few years ago. The court found that the PM committed one of the Thou Shalt Nots of their Constitution and was therefore no longer Prime Minster from that point. In this case, it was replacing the head of the National Security Council with a relative, which the Court found to be an act of corruption.

Thailand was the scene of some very partisan protests last year, so there's a chance this could get ugly. Hopefully calmer heads will prevail.
