    Former Thai premier found guilty of corruption
       
     deposed Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and his wife Pojaman … BANGKOK, Thailand – A Thai court found former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra guilty of corruption and sentenced him Tuesday to two years in prison, adding a new twist to the country's paralyzing political crisis.
    
    The guilty verdict was the first against the country's former leader since he was ousted by a 2006 military coup after being accused of corruption and abuse of power.
    
    Thaksin, 59, jumped bail and fled to England two months ago along with his wife, Pojaman, 51, who was also charged. The Supreme Court acquitted her on Tuesday.
    
    Thaksin told The Associated Press Tuesday that the conviction was "politically motivated" and "a carry forward of the coup d'etat" against him.
    
    The ruling was greeted with excitement by the political movement trying to force out the current government, which they accuse of being controlled by Thaksin.
    
    Raucous cheers erupted among several thousand members of the People's Alliance for Democracy, which has occupied the grounds of the prime minister's offices since last August. They chanted, "Go to jail, go to jail!"
    
    The charges stemmed from allegations that Thaksin facilitated his wife's purchase of lucrative Bangkok real estate from a state agency in 2003, while he was prime minister.
    
    "The defendant was the prime minister at the time. He should have been honest and ethical and should not have violated counter-corruption laws," Thongloh Chomngam, head of the court's nine-judge panel, said in reading from the lengthy verdict.
    
    The Supreme Court's ruling made Thaksin the first politician convicted of corruption committed while prime minister, but it did little to resolve the country's political standoff.
    
    Thai authorities have not yet begun efforts to extradite Thaksin.
    
    The verdict, which had been widely expected, was unlikely to ease the political tensions that have been boiling since the protesters took over Government House on Aug. 26 and staged militant street demonstrations.
    
    "We still will not leave Government House, and we still call for political reform to get rid of the Thaksin regime and the current political system plagued with corruption and abuse of power," said Pipob Thongchai, a protest leader.
    
    The protest leaders say they want to change the country's political system in a manner that would stamp out corruption. But their critics say their plans would disenfranchise the country's poor majority and put more power in the hands of the traditional elite.
    
    The court found Thaksin guilty of violating several laws barring bar public officeholders and their spouses from holding a contract with the state. Thaksin's lawyers had argued that the agency from which the land was purchased was an independent body.
    
    Thaksin remains the most influential politician in the country, especially in the countryside, where he built up a political base during his 2001-2006 time in office by implementing a raft of populist programs
    
    His brother-in-law, Somchai Wongsawat, is the current prime minister and has been labeled a Thaksin puppet by protesters demanding his ouster.
    
    Somchai's government has been virtually paralyzed by the protests.
    
    Former telecommunications tycoon Thaksin turned politician faces a string of court cases and investigations into alleged corruption and abuse of power during his six years in office. 
    
    Thaksin has repeatedly proclaimed his innocence, saying the charges were politically motivated. 
    
    The court also Tuesday ordered a fresh arrest warrant for Thaksin, who already has several warrants out for him in connection with other corruption cases. .

    @ cyberbenno,

    er hat doch die 20 Bath Versicherung abgeschlossen, oder nicht?
    Hilft die auch in England?
    Vielleicht hilft eine Ausweisung und den später dazugehörigen Kosten.
    Wie gesagt, alles ist versichert. LOL.
