It look like Thaksin have said he don’t feel like to return to politics many times, again and again to news sources around the world. But in practice, he never stop involving in politics. He also traveled around the world and try to discredit the military and Thai court of justice on all interviews.

If you keep an eyes on politic news for last few days, you may found some interesting characteristic of Mr. Thaksin Shinawatra, which was spotted and have been analyze on This article, Thaksin’s new interview: Take it with a heavy grain of salt.

Thaksin denies plans to return to politics, the former telecommunications mogul insisted he had no desire to return to active politics, however “he said he remained abreast of relevant political developments as he battles to reclaim $1.9bn anti-graft investigators seized from his family last month”

The funds in dispute are the proceeds from the Shinawatra family’s $1.9bn tax-free sale last year of Shin Corp, their telecommunications empire, to Singapore’s Temasek Holdings, the largest ever corporate takeover in Thailand, which triggered mass protests that ultimately paved the way for the military intervention.

Then later in this interview, Mr. Thaksin urged Thai voters to reject a constitution that he saw as an act of “political revenge” against him. He said voters should aim for the restoration of the abolished 1997 constitution, which was intended to stabilise and clean up Thailand’s notoriously money-driven politics but was later blamed for failing to check Mr Thaksin’s power.

Is he trying to be democracy hero ? Or he just trying to prevent himself from being judge in many corruption charges ? You decide.

Thaksin completed his purchase of Manchester City earlier this month

‘A Fit and Proper Premiership?’

A leading human rights group has written to the Premier League to challenge Thaksin Shinawatra’s right to own Manchester City.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) claims Thaksin is “a human rights abuser of the worst kind” and should not have passed the League’s ‘fit and proper person’ test. Thaksin, the Thai prime minister from 2001 to 2006, denies the allegations. Under any definition, I don’t see how Thaksin can be fit and proper,” HRW’s Brad Adams told BBC Sport. “I’ve written a letter to the Premier League asking what this test means.”

Thaksin’s lawyer, Noppadol Pattama, told BBC Sport that the allegations were completely unfounded. “The civil and human rights charges against him have never been proven,” said Noppadol. “My client deserves to be treated as an innocent man, until proven guilty. “So far there hasn’t been any solid evidence against him.”

The Premier League has replied to the letter and issued a statement defending the fit and proper person test. “We have very clear rules on the ownership of our clubs,” the statement read. “These rules go above and beyond any requirement by company law and are some of the sternest in any UK industry.”

Amnesty International shares many of HRW’s concerns and their spokesperson told BBC Sport: “Thaksin did preside over some very serious human rights violations. “If the Premier League wants to take any of that into account when making their decisions, we’re happy to make our documents available to them.”The allegations against Thaksin are that, during his time as Thai prime minister, he:

  • Presided over extrajudicial killings during the notorious “war on drugs”. HRW says 2,500 people were killed during one three-month period at the start of 2003.
  • Told the Thai military to employ any means to suppress an insurgency in the south of Thailand.
  • Suppressed the Thai media.
