Who raped and killed the rice goddess?


From Manager, July 13, 2014
Goddess of Rice: Those two siblings… raped and killed me… Don’t you demand death sentences for them?
Caption: Yes… and they seem to be at large…

[The siblings are Thaksin and Yingluck Shinawatra who came up with the plan to reward supporters of their party by paying greatly inflated prices for rice. Besides depleting government funds to ensure the stability of a political party, the plan lost Thailand its position as world’s top rice exporter and caused hardship to farmers who were goaded into taking out huge loans to plant rice to take advantage of government payouts. The death sentence in the cartoon refers to calls to put to death the man who raped and murdered a young rail passenger.]
