Second arrest warrant for Man City owner Thaksin

A second set of arrest warrants has been issued in Thailand for Manchester City owner Thaksin Shinawatra and his wife.

The warrants have been issued in relation to a police inquiry into the couple's alleged violations of stock-trading laws.

In August, a court issued warrants for the couple over corruption allegations relating to a land sale.

"The court approved an arrest warrant," Pornchai Asavawattanaporn of the Department of Special Investigations (DSI) said.

The Supreme Court is set to consider on 25th September whether extradition proceedings should begin in the case.

The couple have been placed on an immigration blacklist, which means that they can be immediately arrested should they try and re-enter Thailand.

Pichit Cheunban, a lawyer for Thaksin, explained that they will now consider their next course of action, he said: "A team of his lawyers will discuss what to do next."

Thaksin and his family have denied all allegations of corruption against them.
