The Shooting at the Twenty Club

From Manager, March 15, 2012
Chalerm’s son Duang says: I didn’t break the law. I only did what the law prohibits.
The caption reads: Now we know how this boy managed to stay out of jail.

[This cartoon references the notorious shooting in Twenty One Club when Chalerm’s son Duang was accused of shooting Police Sergeant Suwichai Rodwimut in public. Duang then fled to Cambodia and after many months returned to Thailand as witnesses clammed up and the case fell apart.
In this cartoon, Duang is shown quoting his father Chalerm. Recently Chalerm insisted that Thaksin must return and defended the opinion with the widely quoted statement that Thaksin “did not commit any offense, but instead happened to do what the law prohibited.”]

    What we really want to know is whether your MICT site blockage yesterday was a genuine April Fool?

    Yes, the blocking was just an April Fool’s joke. I have the feeling that with the way politics is going that someday Thai websites may have to ban together in a voluntarily block as a protest against the pressure being exerted on them over political news.
