Authorities Fail to Keep Track of Thaksin's Whereabouts

BANGKOK: -- The chief prosecutor for international affairs has admitted that the authorities have lost track of fugitive former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who recently met with Deputy Prime Minister Sanan Kachonprasart in Oslo, Norway.

Sirisak Tiyaphan, director general of the Office of the Attorney General's International Affairs Department, said the Royal Thai Police and the Foreign Affairs Ministry have yet to locate the exact whereabouts of the fugitive former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, despite his recent meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Sanan Kachornprasart in Norway during his personal trip to bring back an ancient Buddhist scripture from a temple in Oslo, to be temporarily enshrined in Bangkok.

However, according to latest reports from unconfirmed sources, Thaksin is said to have returned to his residence in Lebanon.

Sirisak said whether the ex-premier is living in Norway or Lebanon, the authorities will have to check if Thailand has extradition agreements with those countries.

He added that if there are no such agreements, the Thai authorities will have to seek extradition through diplomatic means based on the principle of reciprocity.

The decision is then entirely up to the governments of the nation to which Thailand have made such requests.

Maybe k. Sirisak Tiyaphan is the only one who didn't see the many newsflashes from k. Noppadon about a possible meeting with k. Thaksin in Norway. Had he known he might even have joined the meeting and asked mr. T.'s travel itinerary for the coming months ;)

This whole game is simply daft and is rather insulting to the Public in general.

Of course they know where he is. But perhaps those in power refuse to acknowledge this to the public and thus do not have to act.

In Thailand the mantra 'No action is the best course of action' appears ingrained throughout society....

I find this comment entertaining, " the authorities will have to check if Thailand has extradition agreements with those countries.". Surely this is not something shrouded in mystery? Perhaps they should try Google, " "At present, Thailand has extradition treaties with 14 countries - the US, UK, Canada, China, Belgium, Philippines, Indonesia, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, South Korea, Bangladesh, Fiji, and Australia.".

I guess our Red Pimpernel is safe for the moment then :lol:

Well law enforcement in Thailand has never been known for its speed or efficiency.. So, this does not surprise me in the least.

No offence and with due respect, but if Thailand is your back yard it's easy to loose an elephant or two. Sometimes you may even see them wandering around in Bangkok, the elephants that is :)
