Japan has banned ex-Thai PM Thaksin Shinawatra from entering the country as he is a fugitive, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said Thursday.
Abhisit did not say when Japan decided to blacklist Thaksin. “I already received reports that Japan has decided to ban Thaksin from entering the country,” he said.
Abhisit was speaking before departing to Tokyo for a three-day official visit.
Japan became the second country, after England, that banned runaway Thaksin, who was sentenced to two years in jail on corruption charges
