THAKSIN'S INTERVIEW Thaksin condemns Times online for false reporting

Monday, November 9, 2009

Fugitive ex-prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra claimed on Monday that the interview published on Times online was a total lie and distorted, adding that it had caused misunderstanding among readers and Thais.

He was referring to the interview conducted in Dubai by Richard Parry, whose article was published with a headline that touched upon the royal successor.

In an urgent statement, Thaksin claimed the headline was totally unfounded and that he had never touched up on the subject during the interview.

"I did not say anything like that," he said.

He also denied that he said that he had "called for reform of the country's revered monarchy and spoken of a 'shining' new age after the era of the ailing King, Bhumibol Adulyadej".

He reiterated that he never had never spoken to the press about the monarchy, adding that he has always been loyal and protective of the royals, and believed they should never be linked to politics.

He said the article was a lie and caused confusion, adding that he had told the journalist several times that the monarchy issue was very sensitive and that the report should be as accurate as possible.

"I condemn Times online for reporting lies and causing confusion on the matter. I want everyone to know that I and my family are loyal to Their Majesties and are ready to sacrifice our lives," he said.

Live in Joy

Live in Joy, In love,
Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, In health,
Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, In peace,
Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.
