Abhisit supports 'people's amnesty bill'

- +

Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva has voiced support for the people's amnesty bill proposed by relatives of those killed in the 2010 political violence, arguing that its conditions are clear and reasonable. 

He was referring to the bill proposed by relatives of victims including Payao Akkahad, mother of volunteer nurse Kamolkade Akkahad, who was shot and killed at Wat Pathumwanaram on May 19, 2010.

If the government is serious about pursuing an amnesty, he would be happy to take part in negotiations to push the people's bill into effect, he said.
