A Thai court issued arrest warrants Monday for former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and his wife in connection with their alleged violations of stock-trading laws. It is the second set of warrants issued in the past month against Thaksin, who has been living abroad since he was ousted in a bloodless coup almost a year ago. The other case involved conflict of interest in connection with the sale of Bangkok real estate. Sunai Manomaiudom, director-general of the Department of Special Investigation, announced that Bangkok Criminal Court had issued the warrant at his agency's request.
