Crackdown on the elderly

From Manager, January 28, 2021
Left, PM Prayuth: This shows that the government doesn’t ignore the problem of corruption.
Right, PM Prayuth: Today, we were able to arrest about 30 persons who corrupted the elderly fund… This is the huge number of arrests.

[Refers to the strange and sudden spate of cases launched by the government demanding compensation from elderly people who inadvertently received money handouts from the government while also receiving existing compensation from the government such as a pension for the wrongful death of a child.
This led to many stories of bewildered elderly people in the press, confused by the aggressive demands that they pay back money to the government.
The cartoonist ridicules the government’s tough action against the elderly which contrasts with their unwillingness to tackle corruption involving their political allies and the rich.]
