UDD pitches riot amnesty by decree

- +

The United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) has called for a blanket amnesty for all people charged with political offences during conflicts between Jan 1, 2007, and Dec 31, 2011. 

Deputy Commerce Minister Nattawut Saikuar, who is also a core UDD leader, said yesterday the amnesty should come in the form of an executive decree.

He said this differs significantly from the proposal put forward by the Nitirat group of jurists which wanted to include a chapter on an amnesty and conflict resolution into an amendment to the constitution.
