Supreme Commander Thanasak Patimaprakorn and army leaders will discuss the recording of an alleged conversation between Deputy Defence Minister Yutthasak Sasiprapa and ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra. 

In the audio clip, which was posted online last week, two people discuss a plot to seek support from the military, the Defence Council and the National Security Council, to allow the government to issue an executive decree to grant an amnesty to bring Thaksin home without being punished for his corruption conviction.

The conversation is said to be between Gen Yutthasak and Thaksin, when they met in Hong Kong on June 22, eight days before Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's cabinet reshuffle.
