Former Cambodian PM Hun Sen to visit Thaksin tomorrow

Written by World Events

Former Cambodian PM Hun Sen is scheduled to travel to Bangkok tomorrow to visit Thaksin Shinawatra, at the latter’s residence in Ban Chan Song La, Paetongtarn Shinawatra, Thaksin’s youngest daughter confirmed today.

Hun Sen is worried about Thaksin’s condition and asked for a personal meeting with Thaksin, Paetongtarn said, adding Hun Sen will have lunch with Thaksin before returning to Phnom Penh.

Hun Sen once appointed Thaksin, who was in self-exile after the coup that deposed him at the time, as his economic adviser and, last year, Thaksin, together with his sister Yingluck, attended Hun Sen’s birthday party in Phnom Penh.

Tomorrow’s visit comes just five days after Thaksin was released on conditional on parole after serving a prison term on corruption charges, not a night of which was actually served in prison.

He spent only a few hours in the Bangkok Remand Prison before being transferred to Police General Hospital, where he remained for six months before being granted parole. He emerged from the hospital on Sunday wearing a neck brace and with his arm in a sling.

Many people doubt his illnesses are genuine, believing they have been fabricated to avoid him serving his sentence in an actual prison cell.

Senior members of the Pheu Thai party have provided conflicting information about his condition, mentioning ailments such as a rotator cuff tear, cervical spondylosis and limited mobility, among others. Paetongtarn is the leader of the ruling Pheu Thai party.
