Thaksin appeal ruling Wednesday

Bangkok Post : Thaksin appeal ruling Wednesday


Thaksin appeal ruling Wednesday
  • Published: 10/08/2010 at 06:11 PM
  • Online news: Local News
The Supreme Court will rule on Wednesday whether to accept an appeal by former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra and his family against the seizure of their assets worth 46.37 billion baht.

The Supreme Court's Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions ruled on Feb 26 that Thaksin and his former wife, Khunying Potjaman na Pombejra, concealed their Shin Corp shares and that Thaksin abused his position as prime minister to enrich the company.

The court ordered the seizure of 46.37 billion baht, part of the 76.6 billion baht which the Shinawatra family gained from selling their stake in Shin Corp to Temasek Holdings, and the share dividends.

The court found the sum had been accumulated through corrupt means while Thaksin was prime minister from 2001 to 2006. The law requires the family to provide the court with new evidence and witnesses for a second trial to be convened.

Thaksin and his family members submitted their appeal to the court, which set up a five-member panel, led by Supreme Court vice president Pirapol Pichayawat, to vet the defence arguments.

The vetting process has been completed and a report submitted to Supreme Court president Sobchok Sukharom.

The Supreme Court has scheduled a plenary meeting of 142 judges for 9.30am on Aug 11. The judges will decide at the meeting by majority vote whether to accept the appeal.

If the meeting resolved to reject the appeal, the assets seizure case will be finalised.

I thought this news would make more of a noise with its release. I wonder what Mr. T will say about this? I haven't heard a Thai say a word about it all day. The world goes on.

This is no surprise is it. Much as I hate MrT, the law was changed by the army to get him in a totally illegal way (by any rule of law) rather than attack his most obvious case; wouldn't want to open up that rather large can of worms and the crown property/inverstments... The main ruling was that this army imposed change was considered to be 'an act of parliament'... So, these corrupt bastardoses will just push it and push it and push it to the nth degree; so many of them in it up to their neck...

Asset appeal rejection expected, Thaksin to keep on seeking justice: adviser





Former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra will carry on looking for justice following the high court's decision not to launch an appellate review on the Bt46 billion asset seizure case, his legal adviser Noppadon Patama said on Wednesday.

"We are disappointed because Thaksin has fallen prey to political bullying tactics since the coup to oust him from power," he said.

Noppadon said Thaksin had been informed about the rejection of his appeal and that the defence team would continue to explore options in seeking justice.

"I think after hearing the rejection, Thaksin and his family members felt they did not get fair treatment," he said.

Bangkok Post : Govt advised, use Thaksin


Govt advised, use Thaksin’s money
  • Published: 12/08/2010 at 12:39 PM
  • Online news: Breakingnews
The government should consider ways to use the money confiscated from former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra to finance its Strong Thailand (Thai Khem Kaeng) stimulus scheme in 2012, Thanawat Polwichai, director of the Economic and Business forecasting Centre, said on Thursday.

“By doing this, the government will be able to introduce a balanced fiscal budget sooner,” Mr Thanawat said.

The government can also use the money in the 2011 fiscal year to reduce the demand for foreign loans next year, he added.

Mr Thanawat said the government has acess to Thaksin’s money after the Supreme Court plenary assembly yesterday ruled not to accept for consideration the appeal by Thaksin and his family against the seizure of 46 billion baht of their frozen assets, on grounds of no new evidence having been presented.

The Supreme Court's decision means the verdict is now final .

that would be a nice thing,

first the money should be used to pay for the attendance of the poor cattle at the rally who didn't get paid

then build "re-education" school for the North east to teach them not to hate and how to work without a government handout

Best thing is to divide his money up into portions, then give a certain amount to Generals, a bit less to Colonels and Majors, slightly less to Captains, then give whatever is left over to Generals.

Lets not fool ourselves that this money is going into any pockets other than military personnel. BF, if you spoke about this to our mutual friend who met with erstwhile senior members of the military junta, you'd think likewise.

Manys the true word spoken in jest , but I think your list is a bit short. I'm sure there will be other beneficiary's outside the military.

Bangkok Post : Thaksin should accept court


Thaksin should accept court’s ruling
  • Published: 12/08/2010 at 03:51 PM
  • Online news: Breakingnews
Former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra should accept the decision not to accept for consideration the appeal by Thaksin and his family against the seizure of 46 billion baht of their frozen assets by the Supreme Court plenary assembly, Thepthai Senpong, personal spokesman of Democrat Party leader, said on Thursday.

Even if the decision was not a ruling by the court, but it was an outcome of justice procedure, Mr Thepthai said. He added that Thaksin still have legal right to continue fighting to prove his innocence and protect his assets. The spokesman did not believe that the red-shirts had never received financial support for political rallies from Thaksin, as claimed by Jatuporn Prompan, core leader of the United front for Democracy against Dictatorship.

technically it's their money since Thaksin failed to "distribute" the spoils when he was in power. Fair game for them to claim what they are due. And they had to go through the pain of organizing a coup to remove him, surely this needs to be rewarded in some regards.

An undemocratic decision from an unelected, illegitimate, appointed, jerrymandered, tampered, illusion for a judicial system.
