Ex-Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has deserved his rights to get back his diplomatic passport that was revoked after the military junta took power, Foreign Minister Noppadon Pattama said Thursday.

Ousted PM should get red passport back : new FM

"Due to the rules of laws and as long as other former prime ministers can keep their diplomatic passports, Khun Thaksin should get back his diplomatic passport," said Noppadon on his first day as foreign minister.

Noppadol was legal adviser and spokesman of Thaksin, who was ousted by a coup in 2006.

Foreign Ministry decided to cancel Thaksin's diplomatic passport, known as red passport, shortly after a Thai court charged Thaksin of abusing of power last year.

Noppadon said Thaksin is presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law."
