Title: The power of… my own rules
Deputy PM Wissanu Krea-ngam holds two books of law.
Book on the left: Amend the law to extend the charges to be enforced from its inception
Book on the right: Amend the law from being wrong to being correct
Above the book on right: Opposition group
On Wissanu’s suit: Political counsel
Phi Nooring: The power can be made.
Mouse: Destroy the rule of law.
[Refers to Deputy PM Wissanu Krea-ngam, a key legal counsel for the junta. The cartoonist contends that the junta has changed laws to destroy its enemies–particularly Thaksin and his allies. On the other hand, other laws seem to be violated to the benefit of the junta–such as the anti-corruption act.
Recently, PM Prayuth faced a scandal for overpaying for buying dogs (suggesting kickbacks or other considerations) while Deputy Prawit Wongsuwan has been able to fault wealth well beyond the assests he has been required to declare.]
