Stopped by Lese Majeste

From Thairath, May 14, 2012
The cartoon title reads: Do you understand yet how A-Kong felt?
On the man’s back: Kaeng Krachan National Park staff
On the paper her holds: Charge of tampering with royally initiated projects
Man with glasses: Dr. Niran
Woman: Amara
On the wall: Neglectful of One’s Human-Rights Commission of Thailand [The cartoonist has changed the name of the Human-Rights Commission to this. This is his version of the name.]
Left mouse: Now you got it yourself too
Right mouse: Release the political victims
[Dr. Niran and Amara are members of Human-Rights Commission; Amara is the chairwoman. This cartoon relates to the Thai news story, “Staff of Kaeng Krachan National Park filed three lawsuits against Dr. Niran; one charge is related to tampering with royal projects.” The message of the cartoon is that the human-rights commissioner now knows how other people feel when they are confronted with unjust lese majeste charges.]
