As a former law student, I had never heard this particular phrase before. It came straight from the mouth of Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam, the government's top legal counsel who has served many previous governments in the capacity of cabinet secretary-general because of his extensive legal expertise.
It was speculated that the recent legal initiatives to resolve controversial issues related to the Sangha Supreme Council and Wat Phra Dhammakaya came from Mr Wissanu.
These include an amendment to the constitution to give the King power to appoint the supreme patriarch instead of the council, resulting in an end to the impasse over the appointment of the new supreme patriarch and the stripping of the titles bestowed on Phra Dhammajayo, the elusive former abbot of Wat Phra Dhammakaya.
