The hooded figure: Maew will come back to claim his 47 billion baht! [Maew is nickname of Thaksin. In 2010, the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Person Holding Political Positions convicted him guilty of corruption charges and confiscated assets worth 47 billion baht]
On the hooded figure’s robe: Order to suppress the people; 100 dead bodies [referring to the Red Shirt protest of 2010]
