Former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra announced during his Clubhouse lecture last Tuesday evening that he would return to Thailand, but did not say when. His statement was in response to questions from his audience.
Thaksin returned to Thailand for a short visit on February 28, 2008, before moving abroad in self-imposed exile.
His government was overthrown on September 19, 2006, in a military coup led by General Sonthi Boonyaratglin.
The former prime minister was later sentenced in absentia to two years in prison for abuse of power.
