Worachai: Chalerm may shelve his bill

- +

Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung could defer his plan to file a private amnesty bill with the House of Representatives office on May 23 after hearing what former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra had to say on Sunday night, Pheu Thai MP for Samut Prakan Worachai Hema said on Monday. 

Thaksin said via Skype to a large number of red-shirts gathering at the Ratchaprasong intersection on Sunday night to mark the third anniversary of the May 19 military crackdown on anti-government protesters that the government must focus on absolving red-shirts facing legal action over the 2010 political violence.

He said he would not mind if political leaders, including himself, were not exonerated of charges.
