Thaksin rumours again

Rumours resurfaced in The Nation that deposed premier Thaksin Shinawatra is planning a return to Thailand in December

According to the paper "The military was yesterday watching closely emerging "undercurrents" in 17 provinces in the North as rumours spread that deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra was trying to sneak back to Thailand. Meanwhile, a source at the Thai Rak Thai Party said Thaksin would return to Thailand in early December ahead of announcing its dissolution at the end of that month. "

CNS chairman General Sonthi Boonyaratglin said the situation was under control.
"There's nothing to be worried about in general. I'm sure our officials will handle the matter," he said. Sonthi confirmed that Thaksin was in China and did not propose to return. Thai Rak Thai spokesman Sita Divari confirmed this. "He has no plans to return to Thailand," Sita said yesterday afternoon, several hours before another source said differently.

According to that party source, Thaksin had spoken with Thai Rak Thai officials and decided to return to Thailand in early December, when he would announce the dissolution of the party at the end of the month.

Oh well we shall see - still planning to go to Thailand.
