The wife of ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was handed an arrest warrant after she returned to Thailand on Tuesday to face corruption charges that could put her behind bars for 20 years, police said. Police presented Pojamarn Shinawatra with the warrant at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport and asked her to sign it, said police Maj. Gen. Thaweesak Toochinda. "We are asking her to double-check the document to insure that she is the same person for which the court has issued the arrest warrant and then will take her right to the court," Thaweesak said.
