Japan bans Thaksin from entering : PM

BANGKOK: -- Japan has banned ex-Thai PM Thaksin Shinawatra from entering the country as he is a fugitive, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said Thursday.

Abhisit did not say when Japan decided to blacklist Thaksin.

"I have received reports that Japan has decided to ban Thaksin from entering the country," he said.

Abhisit was speaking before departing to Tokyo for a three-day official visit.

Japan became the second country, after England, that banned runaway Thaksin, who was sentenced to two years in jail on corruption charges.

Adding Japan now to the "No Go" list... Thakky better hurry up with that Togo mansion before they're all snapped up...

RP to 'politely' send back Thaksin

MANILA, Philippines-- Foreign Undersecretary Franklin Ebdalin said on Sunday the government would "politely" turn down any request for political refuge from the self-exiled Thai leader, citing Manila's "friendly" diplomatic relations with Bangkok.

"If an applicant for a political asylum insists, the first thing the friendly country customarily does is to send him back to his home country," Ebdalin said in Filipino in a phone interview from Hong Kong.

:o:D

Good luck and enjoy your new country, Thakky....

A house in Togo...(or Togolese Republic, if you will)

Seems like a mansion in Togo is looking pretty good for him...

Apparently more and more countries take his corruption charges seriously.

Nevermind, there's always Cambodia, and Thaksin is not like them nasty Democrats, he loves Hun Sen and his country very much. Would give and arm and a leg to please the next democratic hero of South East Asia. Not his arm and leg, of course, just a chunk of Thai territory around Preah Vihear.

Corruption? His wife bought a land. No mistake was found.

He, being her husband, signed ok for her to buy, as per the law.

he was corrupt and he has never been a smart businessman and the thai police were his personal army.

the shame is that the Thai people ever elected him in the first place. who would want scum like that representing your country on the world stage ?

How can Abhisit "restore their confidence to Thailand" when he is not confidence in what he is doing? He now has to please those who voted for him: PAD have high positions already. Coalition partners?

"Former Chart Thai party leader Banharn Silpa-archa on Thursday reminded the Democrat-led government to take the coalition partners into consideration and be more generous."

Who's next?

To promote tourism? Good. Those who blocks airports from now on may pay 500 to 10,000 Baht per person if the new law is approved. Done. Tourists will come a lot when they have recession in their countries and think they may be stuck in Suvarnabhumi again. Does that make sense?

PAD have high positions already

Nonsense.

There's Kosit as a Foreign Minister and a guy who worked for Kalaya for two decades who got an assisting position in her new ministry, second tier Sciencey Ministry, not even Interior or Justice or Industry.

None of the PAD big leaders is in any high positions. Not Sondhi, not Chamlong, not Phipob, not Somkiyat.

I bet Japanese know these facts better than Koo.

Can someone make a list of all the countries he is banned from?

England

Japan

Philippines

If he doesn't have a place to live let him know that..

The people of Thailand are waiting for him with open arms and handcuffs.

He will also have free room and board for 2 years in a "brokedown palace"

Why is PM Abhisit is always remembering us about what Thaksin can do and not do, where to go and not to go ... does he have nothing better to spend his time with, like say ... restore confidence in this country ...?

or the newspaper pulled that juicy quote from a press conference concerning the Japan visit because it would make a attention grabbing headline ?

Koo82:

You are such an apologist for Thaskin....You fail to correctly state the fact...as they were:

1. .The court that found Thaskin GUILTY was a court with limited jurisdiction to those holding high office....ONLY

2. The court in it's ruling did not have jurisdiction over Pojaman...but did state that other courts could take up the case...she was not found "NOT GUILTY"...only that they did not have jurisdiction to rule against her.

Agree with a previous poster. It seems a little odd that the current PM would be discussing what Japan is doing regarding who can enter the country. If the Japanese didn't see fit to announce it, it doesn't seem that the Thai PM should do so. Unless, of course, he solved all those other problems.

A Thai PM allowed his wife to have a business-dealing with the government, against the law, and was convicted of it. He then ran away from his sentence, and several other criminal-cases, and refuses to come home to 'face the music'.

He now demands a free pardon for this & all other crimes.

And this helps the poor people how, exactly ? :o

Either you don't know anything from that deal or you lie with purpose.

It was that corrupt that it can't be worse.....

(and don't forget the limitation for making high buildings which got lifted after she bought it)

there are rumors that China banned him. But I am not sure if it is true.

Its called politics;) Hurting Thaksin, PTP and all things red is good politcs for the government coalition and of course it works the other way too. Hitting Thaksin on big face issues is always a good one, as is the linking his side to the unacceptable. Why would the Dems and allies sit back and say and do nothing while Thaksin and reds hit out?

The rumours that went round that I heard were that China was annoyed with his using their territory to cause problems with a neighbour (understandable). Quite whether it led to a ban who knows but but sometimes just lettign soemone know they are unwelcome is enough. While we sometimes fixate on Thaksin, this being Thailand. In the wider world the guy is not really that important and more an annoyance for a country if making statements form their land. Notice now that when interviewed or when conducting yet another phone in it is normally from an anonymous destination. While some red shirt types may fantasize that this is to protect him from Thai special force hit squads, it is far more likely because whereever he is calling home has let it be known no politcal games from our territory/ dont embarrass us.

I see it in the news "thai special force execute Ex-Premier in XXXXland". Thailand is not Israel and I never heard that Thai special forces did execute someone in a foreign country....

Not even hardcore red shirts can believe such a story.....Well Koo82 might.....

What you seem to be saying is that you are in favour of a cover-up. Why shouldn't Thai people be told news concerning an ex-PM?

One of his recent call-ins was from a plane allegedly.... he's broken down having to use international air space to avoid offending by name any country that is harboring his current location.

:o

Won't be long before he's soon conducting all his "business" from up there...

As said above she was innoccent her act was legal, But, a BIG but,

be HE broke a law long on the books,

not one put in place by the junta to nail him.

He did it in broad daylight for all to see. His personal arogance about his power

led hem to believe he could do it and get away with it.

But they called him on it, and got a conviction in open court for all to see.

That's why England and Japan have pulled their welcoming carpets.

NO AMOUNT OF ROSE COLORED WISHFULL THINKING

can make theses facts go away Koo...
