Bangkok: Fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra on Saturday said in his Twitter page that he will not give up his Thai citizenship as he was born in Thailand and he loves the country.

According to the Bangkok Post, Shinawatra was responding to Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva’s remark that as Thaksin is now a citizen of Montenegro, he should consider revoking his Thai citizenship.

Thaksin said Abhisit should revoke his Thai nationality instead because he was born in England and he had ordered troops to kill Thai people.
He believed the government would soon block his Twitter page.
