Justice Minister Pracha Promnok insisted Sunday that former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra would not be benefitted from the draft royal decree to seek royal pardons for inmates.



 

“Thaksin will not receive benefit from the decree and his name will not be included in the list of convicts eligible for royal pardon,” Pracha said.
“Convicts on the run will not be eligible.”
Pracha told a press conference that the draft decree of 2012 used the same wordings with the royal decree of 2011, which was enacted during the term of Democrat Party’s justice minister Piraphan Saliratwipak.
