From Thairath, April 13, 2018
Left: As a lawyer, I’m against on constructing the carved out-forest residence far from people.
Middle: If you are a lawyer then what is a reason for your opposition?
Right: The judge should not stay in the far forest. Please sympathize with the lawyer who has to bring a snack to them.
[Refers to the controversy over the construction of judge’s residences that were carved into a scenic mountainside in Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai.
After there was demands from the public for the the junta to use Article 44 to demolish those houses, Deputy PM Prawit refused and insisted that everything has to run its legal course before other actions could be taken.
The cartoonist jokes that the remote location of the development will mean it will take for time for lawyers to travel to the judges to bribe them (bribe being euphemistically described as a “snack”).]
