BANGKOK, 18 June 2014 – The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) is set to establish a committee which will be supervising all reconciliation activities and national reform.

Permanent Secretary of the the PM’s Office M.L.

M.L. Panadda also made known that the NCPO would set up a committee which comprises officials from the Office of the Permanent Secretary for Defense and other related agencies to oversee the work of reconciliation centers.

The committee will also be responsible for gathering opinions and complaints from the public in order for the NCPO to draw up reconciliation and national reform policies that are acceptable to all sides, he added.
