From Thairath, February 24, 2016
Left: With Thailand under the military government the economy is in downturn just like Burma.
Middle: Why do you know Burma’s economy goes down?
Because I used to be Thailand’s prime minister…
Right: …ordering the EXIM Bank to loan money to the Burmese government in order to sell communication equipment from my company at the highest price.
[Referring to one of the notorious scandals during Thaksin’s time as prime minister when he set up a sweetheart deal that would involve state loans for massive telecom work in Myanmar that would go to his family company.]
