Today’s Bangkok Post has this strange story: Thaksin to receive award from Bolivian President
Bolivia’s President Evo Morales was considering giving Thailand’s deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra the Order of Simon Bolivar after he aided Thai people in the grass-root level, improved their living conditions, and settled the International Monetary Fund (IMF) loan.
Mr Thaksin was scheduled to receive the award at Plaza Murillo in Bolivia’s La Paz.
In addition, President Morales was expected to approach former premier Thaksin to become his advisor to overcome the economic problems in Bolivia.
The award was named after Simon Bolivar, a historical figure who freed many South American countries from Spanish rule.
