Arrest warrant issued for Man City owner

Man City fan surely cannot sleep easy on this news - especially after all the cash that was spent over the summer:
Thailand's supreme court has approved a prosecution request to issue arrest warrants for the Manchester City owner Thaksin Shinawatra and his wife on corruption charges. The former Thai prime minister, who has been living in self-imposed exile in England, took over City in the summer and installed Sven-Goran Eriksson as manager.

It is understood that, if convicted, Thaksin could face up to 10 years in jail and a nominal fine.
Whether this move is politically motivated or not it can't be good to have so much uncertainty surrounding Man City after such an outstanding start to league play.
