font size    

A chartered plane used by Thailand's ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra on his overseas trip ahead of the coup at home landed at the Dong Muang Military Airport in Bangkok Thursday noon, reports said.

Aboard the plane, of Thailand's flagship airline Thai Airways International, are a group of officials who had accompanied Thaksin on his overseas trip, military sources told Xinhua.

A report from Bangkok-based news network The Nation said soldiers immediately surrounded and searched the plane from New York, carrying some 20 Government House officials, who accompanied Thaksin to New York.

They later escorted the officials to meet immigration officers. The officials were released after getting their passports stamped, the report said.

The ousted PM arrived late Wednesday in London, where he owned a apartment house, according to earlier reports.

The martial authority body -- Administrative Reform Council ( ARC), which took over the government in Tuesday night's coup, said Wednesday that it had no plan yet to seize Thaksin's assets. The ARC leader Sonthi Boonyaratkalin said Thaksin and his family could come back to Thailand since they are not accused of any crime up till now.
