Thailand braces for Thaksin ruling

Supporters of ousted PM vow action if court rules in favour of seizing his assets.

    Thailand is bracing for fresh political upheaval as the country's Supreme Court prepares to deliver its verdict on the fortune of Thaksin Shinawatra, the former prime minister ousted in a 2006 coup.

    The court is deciding whether to seize more than $2bn from Thaksin's frozen assets.

    But in his stronghold in the north of the country, the former PM is as popular as ever.
