Judgement day in Thailand
Quite by coincidence, I find myself in Bangkok just in time for this.
This Friday, the Thai Supreme Court will hand down their judgement on whether Thaksin Shinawatra used political power for illegal financial gain (it's pretty clear he did.) If the verdict is yes--and it's likely it will be--then the Thai government gets to confiscate Thaksin's frozen 76.6 billion bhat in assets. And the streets here, they say, are going to roll.
Well, I'll find out. I'm supposed to be here through "Judgement Day" and over the weekend. Will report back.
