[Refers to the “Five Tigers,” the big five mafia groups who openly control the selling of government lottery tickets. These are untouchable criminal cartels that are closely intertwined with the Thai government bureaucracy.
PM Prayuth appointed Lt. Gen. Apirat Kongsompong, whose nickname is Deng, to deal with this problem in order to control the price of lottery tickets.
This is the sort of corruption that elected governments have no ability nor inclination to combat. Gen. Pruayth is using this absolute power to gain public approval by tackling these intractable problems.]
