Cracks, Leaks, Corruption: Thailand's New Airport Off to a Rough Start

The AOT board has found 61 glitches, problems and design flaws that need to be repaired at an estimated cost of $45 million.

"You're beginning to see the evidence of Thaksin's wrongdoing in this," Foreign Minister Nitya Pibulsonggram told a gathering of foreign journalists Monday.

Newspapers columnists have filled their pages with renewed accusations that Thaksin rushed the airport through despite warnings that it wasn't ready for business.
