Thaksin Attends Red Shirt Leader's Restaurant Launch in Bangkok

Former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra surfaced in public today to celebrate the opening of a new restaurant branch by a former red shirt leader in Bangkok. This marks another notable appearance for Thaksin since his release on parole earlier this year.


The event took place at Yeam Tai, a southern cuisine restaurant situated on Chaiyaphruk Road. Key political figures, including Bhumjaithai Party leader and Deputy Prime Minister Anutin Charnvirakul, as well as Agriculture Minister Thammanat Prompao, were also in attendance, underscoring the significance of the occasion.


Nattawut Saikua, the restaurant owner, was a prominent leader of the red shirt movement, which protested against the Abhisit Vejjajiva government in 2009. He later served as Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Commerce under Yingluck Shinawatra’s administration from 2012 to 2014.




Thaksin, who was released on parole citing old age and severe illness, appears to be contradicting his earlier claims. He has been quite active, travelling to multiple provinces including Chiang Mai and Phuket, with plans to visit Nakhon Ratchasima next week.


Rumours persist that Thaksin is exerting influence behind the scenes in Thai politics through the Pheu Thai Party, which his youngest daughter currently leads. Moreover, he has reportedly been involved in mediating between conflicting factions in Myanmar.

The article doesn't mention that last August Natawut Saikeua, the restaurant owner, cut his ties with Pheu Thai following their broken vow not to join with the junta backed parties.

Seems his conscience took a ride..



Always does when money is involved.
