As long as the accused is not a billionaire

From Manager, October 10, 2018
Left, Deputy PM Prawit Wongsuwan: I believe Gen. Srivara will investigate the case of binturong transparently…
Right: Because the alleged offender is only a deputy district chief, not a billionaire…

[A group led by deputy district chief Watcharachai Sameerak was arrested for allegedly hunting binturong in Sai Yok National Park, Kanchanaburi province. Deputy National Police commissioner Gen. Srivara Ransibrahmanaku has been assigned to lead this case.
This case raised concern among the public as it might turn out like the earlier case of well-known construction tycoon Premchai Karnasuta who was alleged of killing endangered animals including a black panther in a wildlife sanctuary. His case seems to be taking forever with most assuming that such a rich and connected person cannot be prosecuted.
However, Deputy PM Prawit Wongsuwan ensured the public that Gen. Srivara will not disappoint the public. The cartoonist ridicules the apparent difference in justice for those who are lowly officials vs a tycoon.]
