Chalerm to propose own amnesty bill

- +

Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung will propose a bill to grant amnesty to all, regardless of political affiliations, during the next parliamentary session, which begins in August. 

He said his draft bill had only six sections.  It would grant amnesty to all who were involved in political violence since the Sept 19, 2006 military coup that toppled the Thaksin Shinawatra government up to the day his proposed amnesty law takes effect.

After parliament goes into recess on April 21, he would tour the Northeast to explain the bill and its intentions to the people there.
