Thaksin’s lawyer Nopphadol says: Don’t worry, boss. I brought a snack box to give to the graven image already. [indicating an offering or bribe to the deity Phra Siam Devadhiraj who is the guardian angel of the nation. The offering of a cash incentive is said to be the way Thaksin deals with those who oppose him.]
On the newspaper: Pa Prem believes that the graven image will punish the person who betrays Thailand. [meaning Thailand’s guardian angel will punish those who wish to destroy the nation for their own ends–here meaning Thaksin]
The caption reads: It’s inefficient.
