The government-initiated reconciliation committee will hold public hearings on the “agreement of truth” next week as parts of its effort to forge understanding on the issue.

Committee spokesperson Maj-General Kongcheep Tantrawanich said om Wednesday that the committee would introduce the draft at hearings in local areas of Bangkok, Nakhon Ratchasima, Phitsanulok and Nakhon Si Thammarat between July 17 and 20.

Conducted by a committee led by Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan, the draft is meant to create a non-legally-binding commitment among political fractures that they will join hands in line with 20-year national strategy and the 2017 charter.

Many academics, civil society members and political figures joined in the drafting process by providing opinions to the committee. The exception was the whistle-blower group, People’s Democratic Reform Foundation, which declined to join.

The committee had also relied on previous academic reports and research on reconciliation building, Kongcheep said.
