It might be 2 importants news.
First, some official informations about the King’s health (statement by the Royal Household Bureau). As usual it’s not very clear.
-King has succession of high and low fever
-they give him antibiotics
-but they found no bacterial infection…
This is rather strange. Antibiotics are not candies… and are used against infection (although we shall remember that it’s a tradition in Thailand to give antibiotics… like candies indeed… So maybe they do the same with the King).
Rumors say that he is in hospital, although the article doesn’t say it. But it seems so.
And then, we learn that Pojaman… ex wife of Thaksin is coming back friday night in Bangkok !
Khunying Pojaman and her youngest daughter; Paethongtarn will return to Bangkok from Hong Kong by Thai International Airways at about 10.30pm.
Pojaman was granted bail after being convicted on tax evasion charge is reportedly arriving Bangkok from Hong Kong. (Nation)
Why she’s coming back now ? A few days after a major political crisis (PAD) ? Why does she take the risk to put gasoline onto the political fire ?
Why does she take some risks for her security ? And why so soon ? Okay she was convincted (but she did appeal) and they are officially divorced… But Thaksin’s ennemies could still use her as a leverage against the ex Prime Minister… So why now ?
Could it be linked to the election of the new prime minister ? Or to the King’s health situation ?
