The Office of the Attorney-General (OAG) will coordinate with the British authorities to extradite ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra to Thailand, Attorney-General's Special Litigation Department director-general Seksan Bangsombun said Tuesday.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday found Thaksin guilty in the Ratchadaphisek land deal case and sentenced him to two years imprisonment.

The prosecutors will soon make a copy of the court verdict and pass it on to Britain to quickly extradite him, Seksan said.

He said the court's verdict will be transcribed into English and it will be forwarded to Britain.

The OAG has formed a working body to work on this matter, he said.

However, the amount of time to bring back the former premier to Thailand would depend on the British authorities, not the Attorney-General, he said.

Thaksin, who was the Prime Minister during 2001 to 2006, was ousted during a military coup on Sept. 19, 2006. Thaksin and Potjaman are in Britain seeking asylum.
