Thai Minister of Heroin Trafficking | Singapore Duo Break Dumb | Malaysian Morality Police Rush Threesome | Can Bangkok Be Accessible to All? | Heads Roll in Manila

What a week. What weren’t we outraged about somewhere, at some time? In Thailand, a new cabinet minister’s past as a heroin trafficker was swept under the rug. Hong Kong still seething, despite government capitulation on a key demand. Teirra sits down with three Thais with disabilities fighting to make the country a place for everyone. Malaysian morality cops overrun resort to investigate reported threesome (suspect says a lizard chased him into women’s bed) and accountability claims some in Philippines following unintended prison release of some of its worst.
