>Noppadon: Thaksin doesn’t benefit from Thai-Cambodia link

(L-R) Tea Banh, Hun Sen and Thaksin played golf together in Cambodia recently.

(BangkokPost.com) – Foreign Minister Noppadon Pattama said the Route No 48 project and four other bridges were not developed for the benefit of ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra.
His statement came after Cambodian Defence Minister Teah Banh said Mr Thaksin is interested in developing another casino and entertainment complex in the Cambodian province of Koh Kong.
The road was built with one billion baht in financial assistance from Thailand. It facilitates the transport of goods from Cambodia to Laem Chabang port in Chon Buri through Trat.
Mr Noppadon told reporters to ask for further detail on the matter with Mr Thaksin’s spokesman Pongthep Thepkanchana.
He, however, said he believes Mr Thaksin will not be able to start business there as his accounts worth 50 to 60 billion baht are being freezed as he is fighting corruption charges against him.
