Govt to consider all draft amnesty laws

- +

The government will take all amnesty proposals, including the demands of the January 29 group, into consideration, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said on Tuesday. 

She said all of the draft laws proposed to the government would be sent to the Council of State, the government's legal advisory body, and other agencies so they could look into the legal aspects.

Proposals for an amnesty law have been drafted by the red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), the independent committee on promotion of the rule of law chaired by former parliament president Ukrit Mongkolnavin, and the Nitirat group of academics.
