Can I be a Shinawatra and escape too?

From Manager, June 26, 2018
Left, former Foreign Affair Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul: Boss… I’m transgendered… changed my family name to Shinawatra… and announced that I am your sister.
Thaksin: Why did you do that?
Right: Because you said you wouldn’t let your sister be jailed even for one second.

[Refers to former Foreign Affair Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul (nicknamed “Ping”) who was sentenced to two years in prison for his actions after the Pheu Thai Party took power in 2011.
One of the first acts of government was the covert reinstating of fugitive former premier Thaksin Shinawatra’s passport.
When this was discovered it left little doubt as to who controlled the government despite claims that Thaksin as not involved in politics.
The cartoonist is pointing out how Shinawatra family members can never be jailed while many of their political henchmen end up languishing in jail.]
