Wife of ousted prime minister lands at Suvarnabhumi Airport
Khunying Pojamarn Shinawatra's flight TG 603 from Hong Kong landed at the Suvarnabhumi Airport as scheduled at 9.30am.
Dozens of reporters, both local and foreign, are now waiting at the arrival lounge and exit doors of the airport.
Pojamarn, wife of ousted prime minister Thaksin, returns home today to face corruption charges.
Police presented Pojamarn with an arrest warrant at the airport.
At 9.58am, Assistant Police Chief Pol Lt Gen Watcharapon Prasarnratchakit, said in an telephone interview that he is now with Pojamarn inside the airport.
He declined to elaborate, saying only that Pojamarn will be taken directly from the airport to the Supreme Court.
Police said earlier that Pojaman will be arrested upon arrival on graft charges as she and her husband, Thaksin, then prime minister, were accused of abusing of power to buy Rachadapisek land.
She is expected to seek bail.
It is reported Tuesday that Police Department will send a vehicle to pick up Pojamarn from the plane.
She will not be taken to Rachateva Police station, which is inside the airport, to be issued the arrest.
Instead she will go directly from the airport to the Supreme Court and all the process including the arrest and applying for bail, will be done there.
