Thaksin case suspended

A Thai court has decided to suspend the corruption case
against Manchester City owner Thaksin Shinawatra.
Thaksin and his wife have
been the subject of allegations of corruption during his time as the Prime
Minister of Thailand.
However, a Supreme Court panel has now declared that
it will only restart the case when prosecutors bring the pair to court.

Rather than this move meaning all charges are dropped or his name being cleared, it is rather an admission that there is not much hope of bringing Shinawatra or his wife to court, meaning that there is little point in continuing with the case at this time.

Although it does mean the case will drag on even further, it will be at least be interesting to see the next move that is made.

vote it up!
