Truth and Justice Before Reconciliation

It was an atrocity that 92 people died and thousands were injured in bloody incidents during Thailand’s pro-democracy demonstration in 2010.
And it is another atrocity that justice has not been delivered yet and so far, not a single government official has been prosecuted for those deaths and injuries.  What's worse is that there are signs that amnesty will be granted to those involved.
It will be a true betrayal of the victims if their right to truth and justice is sacrificed for the sake of reconciliation.  No amnesty should be granted before the truth comes out and before those responsible for the deaths and injuries are prosecuted.
