Left: Sign on table: Ombudsman
Ombudsman: Returning Thaksin’s passport is illegal because the man is a fugitive.
The caption reads: Human standards
Right: Sign on doghouse: Foreign Ministry
The dog says: How can it be wrong to take a passport to my master?!
The caption reads: Ping’s standard
[The dog is Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul whose nickname is “Ping.” The Foreign Ministry was criticized for ignoring the Ombudsman’s ruling and issuing a new Thai passport to Thaksin who fled the country to escape a jail sentence. However, since the government is controlled by Thaksin, the officials have little say in the matter.]
