TOKYO – Fugitive former Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra is reported to be in Japan on a private visit.

Thaksin arrived in Japan at the beginning of the week and was expected to stay there for several days.

Pictures apparently taken by a Thai national staying in Japan have been posted on the internet showing Thaskin walking in Tokyo in he company of a woman.

Thaksin posted on Twitter recently that he was saddened by the May 22 coup.

Thaksin was ousted in a 2006 coup and fled Thailand to avoid a two-year jail term from a corruption conviction.

He is the elder brother of recently disqualified former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who was unseated by a Constitutional Court ruling earlier this month
