Thaksin Censored on CNN Thailand:
Undoubtedly the military government of Thailand needs CNN switched off so it can concentrate on returning the country to democracy. Honestly, who didn't see this coming?
Since being ousted from office, Mr Thaksin has travelled around Asia. The coup leaders fear these visits are politically motivated, and last week cancelled his diplomatic passport.
The Thai foreign ministry said it summoned Singapore's ambassador to discuss the meeting between Mr Thaksin and Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister, S Jayakumar, at the weekend.
"We informed the Singaporean (ambassador) that we are concerned by the political movements made by Thaksin," Thai Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont told reporters.
Singapore said the meeting was purely social and private.
But Thai officials rejected the explanation, withdrawing an invitation to Singapore's foreign minister to visit Thailand later this month.
In another sign that they are still worried by the former leader, the coup leaders asked broadcasters last week to limit coverage of comments by Mr Thaksin and his representatives.
A CNN interview with Mr Thaksin, conducted in Singapore and broadcast elsewhere on Monday night, was not shown in Thailand.
During the interview, Mr Thaksin said he had no wish to return to politics.
