Timesonline Refuses to Release Thaksin Interview Tape to Thailand

BANGKOK, Nov 22 (TNA) -- A British daily has "unofficially" turned down a request by the Thai government to hand over its taped interview with fugitive, ousted former Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra earlier this month which is thought to contain material considered offensive to the monarchy, according to Minister attached to the Prime Minister's Office Satit Wonghnongtaey.

Speaking to the media on Sunday, Mr. Satit said the daily did not provide a reason why it could not provide the taped interview of Mr. Thaksin and said only that it was its right not to comply with the request. Mr. Satit said he had again ordered officials to send a request again and ask the daily to ?reply officially? as the article had hurt the feelings of the Thai people.

The interview was conducted in Dubai where Mr. Thaksin is staying in self-imposed exile and was conducted by Richard Lloyd Parry, a British foreign correspondent who is Tokyo-based Asia editor of The Times of London.

The ex-premier, ousted in a bloodless coup in September 2006, has said his interview was ?distorted? by the reporter.

Mr. Thaksin was sentenced in absentia in October last year by a Bangkok court to two years imprisonment for abuse of power by helping his then wife acquiring a parcel of prime Bangkok commercial property at a price far below its market value. (TNA)
