It looks as if we were all duped about the promised public hearings on reconciliation. The reconciliation bill was instead rushed to the parliament and is set to be debated on the same time that many world leaders are in Bangkok for the World Economic Forum.
I wonder whether Deputy Prime Minister Yongyuth Wichaidit still remembers that promise he made a month or so ago about the reconciliation bill proposed by former coup maker General Sonthi Boonyaratklin’s panel, a plan that was selectively gleaned from the report of the King Prajadhipok’s Institute (KPI).
