Thailand’s convicted ex-premier won’t appeal court ruling

Thailand’s convicted ex-premier won’t appeal court ruling

The lawyer of Thailand’s former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was convicted and sentenced to two years imprisonment in absentia for involving in his wife’s bid to purchase a land plot in Bangkok while in office, said the ex-premier will not appeal the court ruling.

On October 21, Thaksin was found guilty of violating Articles 100 and 122 of the National Counter Corruption Act, which bars government officials, including prime ministers and their spouses, from involvement in or having interests in contracts with government agencies under their supervision.

The Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions handed down the two-year imprisonment in absentia to the ex-premier but set free his wife Pojaman while both of them were believed to stay in London on that day.

The Thai constitution allows for an appeal to be lodged with the court within 30 days after a verdict is read on condition that new witnesses or new evidence can be produced which might alter the outcome of the case. Therefore, the deadline will be on Wednesday, November 19.

The Thai News Agency (TNA) quoted lawyer Kamnuan Chalopatham as saying Thaksin, who is now in Dubai, decided not to appeal the ruling and would explain his reasons to his supporters in Thailand within a few days.


However, Kamnuan said, if Thaksin changes course and decides to appeal, the legal team is ready as it has already prepared the necessary documents, reported TNA
