Deposed Thai PM now wanted for "terrorism"

Mr. Thaksin Shinawatra, the democratically elected Prime Minister of Thailand from 2001 to 2006 who was overthrown in a military -staged coup, is now wanted by the ' Yellow ' government for allegedly being a "terrorist". Ex-PM Thaksin was also a policeman-turned-businessman who was convicted by a Thai court for corruption after his ouster and part of his assets has been frozen. Contrary to public perception, the richest leader in Thailand isn' t Thaksin, but King Bhumipol Adulyadej whose ' deafening silence ' on the protracted crisis in his own country has been noted by many observers as well as analysts of Thai politics.
