Thaksin Shinawatra
The Supreme Court Division on Crimes of Individuals in Political Positions has issued a warrant for former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra for his involvement in a case where he allegedly used his political position to allow the Export Import Bank of Thailand to issue low interest loans to the Myanmar government within the range of 4 billion baht, benefitting his Shin Corporations Shin Satellite company.

The court ruled that Doctor Thaksin’s actions within the case can be construed as evasion. Nonetheless, because the apprehension of the former PM may not be projected, the court has decided to remove the case from it’s roster until the matter may be further pursued.
