Law enforcement officials in Thailand has started making preparations to extradite fugitive ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra following court approval on Tuesday for a warrant for his arrest on a terrorism charge for the unrest in Thailand in recent weeks.

Responding to the charge, Thaksin, in his Twitter message, said he was framed.

In its judicial decision, Thai criminal court reportedly found sufficient evidence to suspect Thaksin's involvement in terror activities. Thaksin was convicted in 2007 under the anti-graft law for a conflict of interest over the Ratchada land scandal and sentenced to serve a two-year jail term.

Thailand has tried unsuccessfully to have Thaksin extradited but Dubai, where he stays, and other countries which he has visited, have not cooperated. The warrant for Thaksin on terrorism would receive due attention from foreign law enforcement agencies, once it was circulated by Interpol, Major General Therdsak Rujirawong, Commander of the Thai Police International Affairs Division, was quoted as telling reporters.
