Some relatives of civilians caught in the deadly crossfire during 2010 military operation against the Redshirt protests have come up with their own version of amnesty bill and are urging the government to accept it.

The group, which calls itself "Families of April-May 2010 Martyrs", was led by Ms. Payao Akhard, the mother of the volunteer medic shot dead inside a temple on May 2010 and Mr. Pansak Srithep, father of the schoolboy killed on a pavement in central Bangkok on May 2010.

The group met with Vice PM Pongthep Thepkanchana at the Government House to submit an open letter addressed to PM Yingluck Shinawatra. They urges Ms. Yingluck to accept the draft of their amnesty bill. The bill calls for immediate amnesty to all protesters involved in any political incident from 19 September 2006 to May 2010, who are still facing criminal charges.

However, the bill would exempt both of the leaders of the Redshirts protests and those responsible for deaths of protesters in 2010 political crisis which spanned from March to May that year and saw tens of thousands of Redshirts occuping parts of central Bangkok for months, before the military operation ended their protests on 19 May.

The operation was authorized by Former PM Abhisit Vejjajeeva and Former Vice PM Suthep Thaugsuban. Both individuals are facing charges of murders and attempted murders for their roles in the crackdown.

This feature is contrary to the drafts written by a number of top politicians in the ruling Pheu Thai Party and the Redshirts movements which would give amnesty to all sides, including the government and the military commanders involved in the 2010 crackdown as well as the Redshirts leaders.
