The new secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC), Lt Gen Paradorn Pattanathabutr, has admitted he was appointed to the post partly because of his close relations with ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra. 

"I did not just come completely out of the blue and become the NSC secretary-general," Lt Gen Paradorn recently told the Bangkok Post in an exclusive interview.
