Q and A: Thaksin Sits Down With Forbes, 2012

Postby oldexp on Sat Mar 01, 2014 1:38 pm

Time and again this interview (http://www.forbes.com/sites/timferguson ... ith-forbes) pops up among the comments to some article.
Would BP or someone else with knowledge please bring light to his part:

Q. Have you ever got your money from the Shin Corp process back?
A. I got back part of it, about $1 billion… That’s why I have money to invest.

Even better would be the Thai Authorities would comment on it.

It is actually very straight forward. The Shin Corp deal with Temasek was worth 2.3 B in 2006 and the Supreme court confiscated 1.4 B leaving 900 M. It took a while for the court process to release the fund and this is the 1B he was referring to. Perhaps he round it up or there were interest accrued. If there was any hanky panky, would you think any of his enemies would have pick it up? :cheers:

Thanks Eric,
So it got nothing to do with the 46 billion Baht withheld that were mentioned many times in context with the PT amnesty bill?
