Thailand constitutional court turned down PM impeachment case

On February 16, 2006, the Constitutional Court of Thailand decided not to hear a petition to impeach Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. The court ruled 8-6 that the petition did not clearly state how he was personally involved in a deal where his family sold its controlling stake in telecommunications giant Shin Corporation to a Singapore state investment agency. The petition alleged that the prime minister violated a conflict of interest provision in Thailand's constitution by managing the affairs of a company.
