Pol. Gen. Somyot at the doorway: Sir, I’ve already checked the reaction of the public… towards a casino… and I’d like to report a result to you.
Caption: No need to report it?

[Refers to the proposal of legalizing casinos proposed by Police chief Pol Gen Somyot Poompunmuang. The idea has been criticized by the public and PM Prayuth dismissed it.
The idea, a holdover from Thaksin’s time as PM, is criticized as a boon for foreign interests to funnel money to connected politicians as well as launder money for them.
