The Shinawatra family has been enjoying more than birthday cake in Hong Kong with revelations that a property deal there netted the clan a 75 million baht windfall.
Thaksin Shinawatra has sold his three-storey home in the King's Park Hill estate of Hong Kong, shown in this photo on Saturday from a real estate agent's website, (Homes.Mitula.hk). Thaksin bought the home in 2007 for a reported US$27 million, said to be a record Asia price.
