More protected than Yingluck

From Manager, July 28, 2020
Thaksin: My sister won’t be in the jail for a second.
Caption on the left: Above the sky…
Chalerm: My son won’t be in court for a second!!
Caption: …There is another sky.

[Refers to Thai proverb “Above the sky, there is another sky” meaning there is a big power behind every apparent power.
The cartoon shows Thaksin and how he protected his proxy Yingluck when she was Prime Minister, pulling her out of the country when it became time for her to receive a sentence during a court case.
In contrast, Red Bull executive Chalerm’s son Vorayuth Yoovidhya is part of such a powerful clique that he, unlike Yingluck, never even has to stand in a courtroom. Then, unlike Yingluck, all the charges were dismissed and the case closed. The cartoonist shows Vorayuth smirking at Yingluck who had to deign to play the game of standing in court.]
