Foreign Ministry, the Office of the Attorney General and the Royal Thai Police had collectively failed to do their job by issuing an extradition request for Thaksin, Democrat MP Thepthai Senapong said Tuesday.


“Thaksin is not staying in the US for just one or two days, therefore this is inexcusable for not knowing his address,” he said in reference an alert about his whereabouts – so US authorities can arrest the fugitive PM and send him back.
He added protests by Thai expatriates were proof that Thaksin’s visit to the US was not smooth, as had been claimed by his legal adviser Noppadon Pattama.
“I view the protests as a snub intended for the government because Thaksin is a fugitive but the authorities have neglected to bring him back to serve his jail term,” he said.
