Bangkok: Thailand`s National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) Tuesday announced details of a three-stage plan for reconciliation, reconstituting the Reconciliation Centre for Reforms (RCR).
The first stage, which has begun, involves preparation. The RCR will invite representatives of various agencies to form working groups to set up a data-collecting centre, lay down an operational plan and fix areas of responsibility, the Bangkok Post quoted Banpot Phunpien, spokesman of the Security Operations Command, as saying.
In the second stage, all working groups will compile information and opinion from people at the village, district, provincial and regional levels to lay down an operational plan for RCR`s consideration. This stage is expected to begin in early June.
The proposed operational plan then will be finalised for implementation in the third stage starting in July.
The RCR aims at providing necessary facilities for all groups, regardless of their ideologies, to come together to create an appropriate atmosphere for people in Thailand.
The centre will handle existing conflicts fairly and systematically under the current justice process, without taking into consideration previous conditions set under the justice process prior to May 22, Banpot said.
Banpot said that coup leader and army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha wants all conflicting parties to join as one to solve problems, move the country forward and take part in the reform process ahead of a clean and fair election truly participated in by all.
