Fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra is back in Dubai after spending time with his family in London last month.



Thaksin’s youngest daughter Paetongtarn on Thursday posted a photo of her father in his Dubai residence on her Facebook account, Ing Shinawatra.

“My father phoned me and told me that he misses his children, nieces and nephew so much after he returned back to Dubai,” she posted.

“We miss you too. We will see you again.”

Thaksin and his two daughters Pintongta, and Paetongtarn have been in London since September 15, according to their posts on social media.

Thai authorities admitted on Wednesday that Thaksin’s fugitive sister, former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, is also in London.

Yingluck last week was sentenced to five years in prison for her negligence in preventing corruption and irregularities in her government’s rice-pledging scheme.

She fled Thailand in late August ahead of the reading of the verdict and flew to Dubai. Foreign media reported that she had left Dubai for London on September 11.
