BANGKOK, 12 December 2010 (NNT) – The US Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) has rescheduled the date for ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s visit, citing reshuffling of its members.

Mr Thaksin’s Legal Advisor Noppadol Pattama announced the postponement of the CSCE for the former premier to address a forum titled “Thailand: Democracy, Governance and Human Rights”, which was earlier scheduled for this month, to January next year.

Mr Noppadol said the US parliament would be welcoming newly-elected members while the new parliamentary session would commence soon, possibly resulting in a reshuffle among the CSCE’s members.

According to his legal advisor, Mr Thakin has responded in letter to CSCE President Benjamin Cardin, saying the reschedule would give him a chance to sort out his visa problems and time to gather more information on human rights violation in Thailand.
