Thaksin's frozen assets the answer to farmers' prayers
March 05, 2014 00:00
In view of the desperate situation now faced by farmers who have fallen foul of the ruinous Thaksin-implemented rice scheme, and the fact that Yingluck must be aware that the return to Thaksin of the estimated frozen Bt60 billion is highly unlikely follow
I can think of no better way for both sides to find a basis for reconciliation, bearing in mind that this vast amount of money is now frozen by the courts and nobody else can claim it anyway.
I am sure that the Shinawatra family, who claim their primary concern has always been to support the farmers, and who already have a fortune of similar proportions, would see the broad benefits and be happy to comply.
