The following is a letter from United front of Democracy against Dictatorship President, Assoc. Prof. Tida Tavonseth, to international community regarding concerns the organization has against the report of the Truth for Reconciliation Commission of Thailand (TRCT) in 2012.
Even though the letter was written last year but the truth and it content is still relevant; The TRCT’s final report into the events of April-May 2010 is deeply biased and only aimed to discredit the Red Shirts supporters, therefore, it should not be used to clarify what happened in 2010 as suggested by spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Cécile Pouilly.

Re: The UDD’s stance on the TRCT’s final report
Dear Emissaries, members of the international community, and foreign press corp, with this letter I seek to clarify the UDD’s stance on the final report of the Truth for Reconciliation Commission of Thailand (TRCT) into the events of April-May 2010. It is the view of the UDD, the victims, and the victims’ family that the report has failed to provide a pathway to reconciliation in Thailand and has exacerbated the political conflict within Thai society.
