Ex-MPs to meet Thaksin in Hong Kong

Former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra will visit Hong Kong later this month and many red-shirt and Pheu Thai members are expected to meet him there, a source at the Pheu Thai Party said.

The trip to Hong Kong had been planned since Thaksin held his 65th birthday party in Paris on July 26, to which only family members and close associates were invited, Matichon online quoted the unnamed party member as saying.

The source said Thaksin suggested former ministers, Pheu Thai MPs and red-shirt supporters should meet him in Hong Kong on Sept 23-25, as it would be more convenient for them. 

It was expected many of Thaksin’s supporters would fly to the Chinese territory to meet him, the source said.
