The House of Representatives specific committee, which will decide whether to create a new council to take the allegations and decide whether lese majeste suspects should be included in the proposed implementation of a new political amnesty on Thursday.

Nikorn Chamnong, director- standard of the council, said it would hold a meeting on Thursday to make a choice.

The sub-committee that research and categorizes works as part of the review of the rules for the passage of asylum laws, Yuttaporn Issarachai, announced on Wednesday that his sub-committee had compiled a list of names of members of the proposed commission, including judges, attorneys, and representatives from the legislative branch.

The listing will be presented at Thursday’s meeting for assent, he said, adding the new committee, if formed, will never interfere with the justice program.

When asked if the formation of the new committee should take longer in response to the death of advocate Netiporn Saneysangkhom, also known as Boong Thalu Wang, who was accused of breaking the der guess laws, Mr. Yuttaporn stated that everything is going as planned.

Netiporn was accused of violating the Lese Majeste’s Order for participating in a study of the imperial motorcades in February 2022. Due to the judge’s objections, her loan request was turned down.

She began a hunger attack in response to the prison of those accused of political crimes after being imprisoned in January. She refused to receive medical attention, which eventually led to her death.

Move Forward Party ( MFP ) list- MP Rangsiman Rome, who is the second vice chairman of the special committee that studies proposals for implementing a new political amnesty, said he would propose the committee consider Netiporn’s case, which is connected to an amnesty- related matter, in Thursday’s meeting.

He claimed that this is to stop those with opposing political opinions and who are facing charges under Part 112 from passing away like her.

Mr. Rangsiman said it was unclear whether Section 112 cases would be included in those that might receive an asylum, adding that the MFP has been advocating that the primary factor be taken into account when deciding whether a particular case could receive an amnesty rather than its type.
