Estimated read time 1 min read

Cambodia has rejected a request for the extradition of former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who is now visiting the Southeast Asian nation.

On Wednesday, Thai diplomats presented Cambodian officials with a request to detain and extradite Mr. Thaksin. He arrived in Cambodia on Tuesday, where he has been appointed economic adviser to Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Cambodia responded with a diplomatic note rejecting the request.

Mr. Thaksin fled Thailand more than a year ago to avoid a two-year jail sentence for corruption.
