Thai Politician. He served as the Prime Minister of Thailand for 8 years (1980 to 1988). He served in the Royal Thai Army in 1941 during World War 2, Franco-Thai War and the Communist insurgency campaigns. During his time as a general in the army he is well known for initiating the negotiations with the members of the Communist Party of Thailand, Consequently, an amnesty was declared and many communist members including former student protesters returned home. This helped end the fighting between the government and communist guerrillas in 1980s. During the mid 2000's he was accused of masterminding the 2006 coup and as well as well as in the appointment of the post-coup legislature and interim government of Surayud Chulanont. The military junta that ousted Thaksin denied that Prem had any important political role.
