Noppadon denies Pojaman visited astrologer in Myanmar

Former premier Thaksin Shinawatra's legal adviser has rejected as groundless a news report stating Thaksin's former wife performed a ritual to ward off evil spirits and weaken enemies during a recent visit to Myanmar and also met an astrologer to seek advice for the self-exiled billionaire's "smooth re-entry" into Thailand.

Noppadon Pattama said that if Khunying Pojaman na Pombejra did engage in those activities there would be nothing wrong with it. "She did nothing illegal," he said at the ruling Pheu Thai Party's headquarters Saturday.

Chiang Mai-based The Irrawaddy reported on Friday that Thaksin performed the ritual as well. It said that during Thaksin and Pojaman's trip to Myanmar, Pojaman visited the famed Yangon astrologer San Zarni Bo to also seek advice on Thaksin's business concessions in Burma.
