From Manager, July 25, 2014
This year, the Birthday Man receives plenty. [The Birthday Man is Thaksin Shinawatra.]
The card is signed: From the NCPO [the National Council for Peace and Order]
In the box: Pojjaman Damapong, former wife of Thaksin, and their three children; Yingluck Shinawatra and her son; Yaowapha and Somchai Wongsawat, sister and brother-in-law of Thaksin.
[The NCPO granted permission for Thaksin’s relatives to travel to Europe to celebrate Thaksin’s birthday. It is thought that this was tactic permission for these figures to go into permanent exile along with Thaksin.]
