A former MP who served time for election fraud before receiving parole now thinks Thaksin Shinawatra may be released from prison after the attorney-general has decided to prosecute him on new expenses.

The fairness minister disagreed and said the former prime minister, &nbsp, then out on probation, &nbsp, was presumed&nbsp, innocent of the new charges until found guilty.

The determination to prosecute him for alleged lee qualifications and computer murder, according to the previous Democrat MP for Nakhon Si Thammarat Thepthai Senpong, made Thaksin an alleged&nbsp criminal. He should therefore be returned to prison soon. The dropping of the expenses affected the problems of Thaksin’s pardon, he said.

” Thaksin is a paroled prisoner. The new offense is described in Section 112 of the Criminal Code ( also known as the der guess rules ). As he now becomes an alleged criminal, the Probation Department has send him back to the Department of Corrections”, Mr Thepthai said.

He was referring to the lawyer president’s decision to prosecute Thaksin for alleged der qualifications and computer violence in relation to his 2015 interview in Seoul about the role of secret councillors and the coup that imposed the government of his younger sister, former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, in May 2014.

Thepthai was jailed for election scam and&nbsp, after paroled. He claimed that many other paroled prisoners were sent back to prison because of offenses like consume- moving and substance abuse, which violated the terms of their release, leading to automatic revoke of parole.

He even made a comment about the proper prosecution being postponed after Thaksin cited a Covid- 19 infections as the cause of the delay. He claimed that the prosecution was made public because there might have been a problem with a key political deal.

Justice Minister Tawee Sodsong said the indictment choice had no effect on Thaksin’s pardon, because he was still considered stupid, pending the judge’s judgement.

According to the secretary, the Probation Department had no informed him of any misconduct that might have an impact on Thaksin’s probation.
