    Samak: No plan to revoke Thaksin's passport or seek his extradition

    No plan to revoke Thaksin's passport or seek his extradition
    By The Nation
    Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej said Friday that he has no plans to revoke passports of fugitive prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra or to ask Britain to extradite him.

    Thaksin jumped bails on a trial which he was accused of abusing his power to help his wife; Pojaman, to purchase a plot of land. The couple and fled to England last week.

    About 2,000 protesters rallied outside the Foreign Ministry on Thursday, demanding that it cancel his passport and work to extradite him from Britain, where the multimillionaire owns several properties and the Manchester City football club.

    Foreign Minister Tej Bunnag said on Thursday that Samak will have a final say whether to revoke Thaksin's passports or not.

    Responding on questions whether he will revoke Thaksin's passport or seek his extradition, Samak said on Friday, "I have no policy to revoke his passport or doing anything on that.

    Thaksin's ouster by the military followed months of huge street protests which accused him of massive corruption and trying to subvert the country's fledgling democracy.

    Hmmmmm ! Thaksin jumps bail, Pojaman is convicted and was awaiting sentencing and skips town also.
    Apparently Samak has no policy to enforce the rule of law or anything like that.
    Is this a case of " I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine " ? Or, a big case
    of mai pen rai ?

    Democrat wants PM to lift Thaksin's passport

    (BangkokPost.com) - Democrat party deputy secretary-general Thepthai Senpong called on Prime Minister and Defence Minister Samak Sundaravej to consider lifting the diplomatic passport of deposed premier Thaksin Shinawatra to draw a distinction between the democratically elected government and the coup installed government.

    Mr Thaksin’s diplomatic passport was previously revoked by the military installed government following the September 2006 coup led by the Council for National Security (CNS).

    Mr Thepthai said the People Power party (PPP) members should not regard the lifting of Mr Thaksin’s passport as an act of insult, but they need to understand that the ousted prime minister can make mistakes. He also criticised Mr Thaksin for making statements damaging the country.

    The Democrat member added that the National Counter Corruption Commission (NCCC)’s decision to probe the reinstatement of Sub-Lt Duang Yubamrung, the son of former interior minister Chalerm Yubamrung, into the military service is an interesting matter. He believed it could be a political patronage between Prime Minister Samak and Pol Capt Chalerm.
