Four Thai government agencies to meet on bringing Thaksin back to face charges

BANGKOK, May 28 (TNA) -- Four Thai government agencies are scheduled to meet Tuesday to map measures to return fugitive, ousted ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra to face terrorism charges in Thailand, a senior official said Friday.

Thailand’s Criminal Court issued a warrant for Mr Thaksin’s arrest on terrorism charges in connection with the violent Red Shirt protest. Mr Thaksin stands accused of masterminding and funding the violent protest of the Red Shirts which culminated in an army assault and Red Shirt arson in the capital and provinces in the North and Northeast during the past week.

Director-General Tarit Pengdit of the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) said the agency together with the Foreign Affairs Ministry, the Royal Thai Police Bureau and the International Affairs Department of the Office of the Attorney General will meet Tuesday to plan how to bring back Mr Thaksin, now living in self-exile overseas.

Mr Tarit also said the DSI will seek arrest warrants for more anti-government Red Shirt key figures next week as concerned officials are now gathering evidence against them.

Chavanond Intarakomalyasut, secretary to the foreign affairs minister, said he had received a report that Mr Thaksin had left France and that he is awaiting a reply from the Montenegrin government whether it would extradite the ousted premier as Thailand asked earlier. Admitting that it is quite difficult to bring back Mr Thaksin, Mr Chavanond said his ministry would put efforts in line with “righteous process and evidence”.

Asked about the ex-premier’s plan to sue the Thai government at the International Criminal Court in the Hague, Netherlands, he said it is impossible as Thailand has not ratified the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. The International Criminal Court is authorised to rule on genocide, invasion, war criminals and international war and crimes against humanity.

The United Nations Security Council will not intervene as it is Thailand’s domestic affair, he said.

A report by the Associated Press (AP) in Podgorica said the Montenegrin government would not extradite or put Mr Thaksin on the track of justice without valid proof or an international arrest warrant. The ousted premier has acquired a Montenegrin passport and stays occasionally in a seaside villa.

Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic told the news agency Thursday that Montenegro gave Mr Thaksin citizenship partly because of his planned multimillion investments in Montenegro’s tourism. However, the premier said “we have mechanisms to correct our decisions” if need be. (TNA)
