The conviction comes after Thailand’s supreme court accepted another lawsuit against the former prime minister, alleging that he gave illegal soft loans to Myanmar to benefit his telecoms firm.

Thaksin’s lawyers have denied all charges, claiming they are attempts by his political opponents to discredit him.
