This is just my opinion. Today's ruling on the Thaksin case will have ramifications in the financial sector of Thailand.Basically, the government's case is that Thaksin whilst in office as Prime Minister used his position to favour the company his children and relatives held shares in - Shin Corp. Some of the facts about Shin Corp share price gains:Shin Corp shares gained some 121 percent between the period of Feb 9, 2001, when Thaksin took office to when he sold it on Jan 23 2006.By comparison, the average gained for shares on the SET (Stock Exchange of Thailand) was 128 percent for the same period (Bloomberg).Hardly an outstanding result for Shin Corp - not like Siam Cement Pcl, which gained a staggering 717 percent over the same period.In my humble opinion, it is very hard to argue that he did something extraordinary (through policy settings) to benefit Shin Corp to the detriment of others. Afterall, the price gains on Shin Corp shares during that time was in line with the average gain of shares on the SET over the same period. I am sure many here feels different and I, like many, expect the court will find a way to rule that way too - given the change in political power over the last year. I would be very surprised if they ruled in Thaksin's favour.Lets hope the financial markets have priced in an adverse finding, otherwise the SET and the Thai baht will be falling.Ah, another thing I forgot to add, if they ruled against Shin Corp, will the other shareholders in Shin Corp (who held 51% of the company) forced to give back all their gains?Afterall, Thaksin's family only owned 49%.
