Dems to boycott amnesty talks

- +

The Democrat Party will not attend a discussion of a proposed new amnesty bill on Monday, spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut said on Saturday. 

Mr Chavanond said his party stood firm on its stance to oppose any move to seek amnesty for those facing criminal prosecution or accused of insulting the high institution.

The Democrats would agree only to amnesty for those facing charges of violating emergency decrees imposed during political unrest, he said.
