Thaksin Shinawatra No longer banned from entering Germany

 

Ousted former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra is no longer banned from entering Germany, his legal adviser Noppadon Pattama said yesterday.

 

“The entry ban was imposed earlier because German authorities received biased information from the Thai government,” he said.

Noppadon claimed that Germany had lifted the ban after realising that information it had received did not correspond to the facts.

He said he expected more countries to welcome Thaksin after learning about the distortion.

Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya called for Germany to justify differing and conflicting treatment of Thaksin. The entry ban had been enacted because of Thaksin’s fugitive status, but that stand was apparently revised to reflect the “improved political situation” in Thailand, he said.

“The German government says the case between Walter Bau and the Thai government is strictly in the hands of the judiciary, but in the Thaksin case it cites the political climate for its decision,” he said, referring to a dispute over monies allegedly owed by Thailand to bankrupt German contractor Walter Bau.

The Former Prime Minister is a Master of Negotiations and since his self imposed exile he has worked diligently to secure broken ties with other Countries.

Saudi Arabia has invited Thaksin Shinawatra to sit on a board overseeing King Abdullah’s gigantic “new city” project and Cambodia Gave him an appointment of economics adviser in 2009.

Could this be an opportunity for the Former Prime Minister to enter into negotiations with the German government and Walter Bau to bring the Royal Airplane back to Thailand?
