Boonlert says military now under Thaksin's grasp

- +

Former Pitak Siam leader Boonlert Kaewprasit says the armed forces are under the control of ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra. 

The retired general, also known as Seh Ai, said he felt disappointed with the armed forces after listening to an audio clip featuring an alleged conversation between Thaksin and Deputy Defence Minister Gen Yuthasak Sasiprapa. The two men in the clip discussed how to get the military's support for Thaksin's return from exile.
