Court dismisses action brought by Thaksin

The Central Administrative Court on Friday dismissed an action brought by ex-Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra against members of now-defunct National Examination Committee (AEC) for violating AEC regulations and holding a press conference about its freezing of Thaksin's assets.

Thaksin, who is now in self-exile and who was represented by his lawyer, alleged that the press conference damaged his reputation.

The Court said the complainant had abused his power in giving benefits to his family and friends in five different cases, thus the AEC's press conference on the freezing of his assets was in line with the facts. It did not tarnish his reputation nor did it violate any regulations. The Court therefore decided to reject the case.
