Thaksin in new gamble in Hong Kong
Thaksin Shinawatr is scheduled to speak at the Hong Kong's Foreign Correspondents Club on Monday, March 2. He may reschedule that talk if news about is imminent arrest proves could be confirmed.
A Foreign Ministry spokesman said yesterday that the ministry would be ready to coordinate matters if the police and public prosecutor seek Interpol's cooperation in taking the ex-premier into custody and send him back to Thailand to serve the two-year jail term handed down earlier by the court on the Rajda land case.
Will Thaksin take the risk of being arrested right in the presence of the whole gallery of foreign reporters?
Nobody knows. He may think it's all worth it.
