On the phone: Mr. President, our Embassy here has already asked Thai people and no one worries with the Article 44 issued by PM Prayuth.
On Obama’s head: Article 44
Caption: In the whole world… there is only one person who worries about this.
[Article 44 raises concerns from human rights groups and the west because absolute power would be centralized in the head of the junta. The junta contends that most people have been unaffected by both martial law and Article 44 and that absolute power is only being applied to groups who have openly vowed to cause trouble for the junta.]
