China doesn’t need to use Thai laws

From Thairath, June 20, 2017
Title: China doesn’t need to use Thai laws
Officer on the left: Must respect the law
On his knife: Article 44 [the junta’s absolute power]
Officer on the right: Can be skipped
On his knife: Article 44
Sign held by man at bottom right: Thai laws
Sign held by mouse: Can overlook Thai engineers

[Refers to the junta using the Article 44 to expedite the Sino-Thai high-speed railway project. The cartoon illustrates the junta using the article to stop people from expressing political views freely and to expedite the railway project without listening to the public’s concerns.]
