The Pheu Thai Party reversed a previous statement that it would add Section 112, or the der qualifications law, to the asylum bill.

The issue is complicated and needs a common discussion, according to Phumtham Wechayachai, Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister, on Friday, to prevent further chaos.

The group has not yet decided whether to support a request to include Section 112 in the bill, according to Mr. Phumtham, Pheu Thai’s deputy leader.

Somkid Chueakong, a spokesman of the House committee that examines amnesty for political detainees and deputy secretary-general for political interests to the prime minister Srettha Thavisin, reported this week that some council members concurred with the plan to cover Part 112 offences under the act. He resisted the assertion that Pheu Thai always blasted the idea of including Part 112 crimes in the asylum bill.

Mr Phumtham said on Friday &nbsp, that the group may talk to the needs of the people. Things would be simpler and the group would move in that direction if every anxious group consented to grant asylum to those who violated 111.

Mr. Phumtham disregarded the criticism when asked about the criticism that the article might gain former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who has just been charged with a stability major offense, saying he did not pay attention to for a state.

” Now, we do not subject to or claim the plan. I think community is aware that this issue has both political and social effects. He claimed that the government is” trying to choose the best course of action” to avoid conflict.

In an interview he gave to a paper in Seoul on February 21, 2015, the attorney general announced Thaksin’s prosecution on May 29 regarding this and other computer violence transgressions.

He has been given an appearance at the Office of the Attorney General on June 18 after being delayed due to a May 29 Covid illness.

Although he was spotted visiting a spa store in the Phloenchit neighborhood of Pathumwan region on Wednesday, Thaksin has never appeared in front of the media since that day.

Nanthiwat Samart, a former deputy chairman of the National Intelligence Agency, also posted a warning on Instagram about how the move resembled the May 2014 coup d’etat.

In 2013, the Yingluck management attempted to pass a blanket social amnesty bill in order to cover up Thaksin, who was then in self-imposed exile. The act ignited big protests led by the Women’s Democratic Reform Committee, which culminated in the resignation of the Pheu Thai- led management, said Mr Nanthiwat.
