The Thai Senate Speaker Nikom Wairatpanij said the bill would most probably be rejected, but was berated by some senators at the conference for speaking on their behalf.
The nation's interests come first. Theys believe the majority of the Senate will reject this bill.
Many believe the government would be reluctant to re-introduce the law.
We cannot be 100 percent sure which way the Senate will act until it convenes on November 11,said Boonyakiat Karavekphan, a political analyst at Ramkhamhaeng University in Bangkok.
Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Bangkok and in cities all over the world since Friday in protest at the bill, threatening to disrupt months of calm in a country scarred by bloody unrest in 2010.
The bill is aimed at whitewashing crimes committed by all leaders involved in political unrest since 2004.
According to Reuters Nikom Wairatpanij has worked for governments backed by Thaksin in the past and is widely thought to be supportive of the Puea Thai-led administration of his sister Yingluck.
