Thanathorn is joining the trip with us

From Manager, January 26, 2021
Rung: Look!… Thanathorn is joining the trip with us.
On the bus: No. 112 Mob-Prison
Thanathorn: I didn’t intend to… but I was clamped by the door.

[Refers to Thanathorn who is accused of violating Article 112 after he questioned the transparency of the COVID-19 vaccine deal between Siam Bioscience, a company connected to the Crown Property Bureau, and the British pharmaceutical firm AstraZeneca.
In the bus are anti-government student leaders Panupong “Mike Rayong” Chadnok, Parit “Penguin” Chiwarak and Panusaya “Rung” Sithijirawattanakul and Arnon Nampa. All are charged with lese majeste.
The joke is that it is traditionally thought that rich political leaders use expendable people to act for them and be the ones subject to legal proceedings. Here, Thanatorn, suspected to be behind the coordination of the student protests, is himself caught up in contentions 112 charges which would normally be heaped on the foot soldiers of political protests, like the student protesters or Red Shirts.]
