$2-BN TAKEOVER: PM’s clan agrees to sell Shin Corp. to Singapore

[Note from 2012: After a year of PAD protests that had little effect on Thaksin or the public, it was the massive sale of Shin Corp that finally ignited widespread public ire against Thaksin.
Update: Several readers pointed out that the protest movement at the time was not yet called "PAD." The anti-Thaksin gatherings at the time were public stagings of Sondhi's political affairs show that had been taken off the air by the government.]

  1. StanG says:

    PAD didn’t officially exist then, it was mainly Sondhi L’s followers, and they’ve been out since August, 2005, not a year.

    Chamlong et al joined in after that sale and so PAD was born.

    Unless the memory is also failing me.
