Paying Rolls-Royce for a tribute

From Thairath, March 28, 2017
Left: In the past, a mafia watched over gambling houses and brothels. Then, they watched over groups of motorcycle taxi and vans…
Middle: Now, those mafias have moved to control the airlines.
Man with hat: The airlines have to pay money to the mafia?
Right: The airline doesn’t have to pay, but whoever is on the airline’s board [of directors] will have to pay Rolls-Royce for a tribute.

[Refers to a case of Rolls-Royce bribery involving Thai Airways, PTT and many politicians. The cartoonist jokes that Rolls-Royce is like the mafia, holding great sway of Thai politicians and business people.]
