The Truth for Reconciliation Commission in today's report criticised the use of legislation, including an emergency decree imposed last year and accused 'involved parties' of violation of criminal law and having political motives; using criminal prosecution to solve the country's problems. The comission further urged authorities to delay political criminal prosecutions and proceed in earnest with a temporary release of all accused. The strongest statement was to recommend halting and reviewing all trials connected to political conflict since before 2006 coup that opened deep divisions in the country.
This surely is a strongest acknowledgement of what went wrong in the last 5 years and a condemnation of the previous government actions. How will this report help reconciliation? Will this truth be accepted by the government opponents?
