Remembering the Thaksin Years: Cut and reborn… ceaselessly…!

From Thairath, November 5, 2003
Cartoon title: Cut and reborn… ceaselessly…!
On the knife in Thaksin Shinawatra’s hand: Corruption suppression
In hands of officer: Demanding money to dismiss cases
On papers in cut-off hands on the floor: Refraining from performing duties; Harassing people; Breaking the laws themselves; Bribes; Resuming roles of influential persons

[The legacy of Thaksin’s time in power would seem to contradict this image of him as a graft buster or police reformer. However, this cartoon shows both the image that was presented to the public and the way Thaksin supporters in the countryside view Thaksin’s willingness to upset the existing order.]

    Mouthpiece of Police trying to defense the corrupt practices to the bitter end – reactionary against any reform movements – those police top brasses even deny the rights to teach Dhamma to those police cadets while those top brasses are living in full Debauchery – orgy – sodomy – taking narcotics and so on so forth – and bribery in chain which are just the tips police Debauchery – not so sure whether Ai Maew also involved in such debauchery before his early retirement.
