The National Reform Council will today suggest granting amnesty to protesters who do not face criminal or lese majeste charges, NRC's reconciliation panel chief Anek Laothammathat said yesterday.
The NRC will meet today to discuss the reconciliation plan proposed by his panel before forwarding it to the NRC chairman Thienchay Kiranandana to present to the government.
Granting pardon to protesters is part of the plan, he said, adding that it did not include blanket amnesty or granting pardon to people like former PM Thaksin Shinawatra. Under the plan, political rivals will also be invited to work together.
Anek admitted that achieving reconciliation under the ongoing political conflicts might be difficult, but if both sides met each other half way, it can be done.
