The Democrat Party has refused to attend a discussion of a proposed new amnesty bill tomorrow, spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut said Saturday. 

Mr Chavanond said the party was firm about its stance to oppose any move to seek an amnesty for those facing criminal prosecution or accused of insulting the monarchy.

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