Former Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra is determined to clear his name as closes in on taking control of Manchester City.

His lawyers have revealed various charges had been laid against members of the Assets Examination Committee (AEC) by Thaksin and his wife Khunying Pojaman Shinawatra. In a statement, his lawyers said: "The sole purpose of the AEC is to sabotage any action by Dr Thaksin Shinawatra.

"Various actions taken by the AEC were illegal, unfair and against the principle of the rule of law. Therefore, Dr Thaksin Shinawatra and his family have no alternative but to take all necessary legal actions to protect himself and his family´s reputation and prestige."
