NACC surprises Yingluck's lawyer

- +

The National Anti-Corruption Commission rushed its decision to recommend indictment against former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra over the loss-ridden rice-pledging scheme because she was leaving for a European vacation, her lawyer said Friday. 

The NACC's decision to ask the attorney-general to indict Ms Yingluck Thursday was unexpected and Ms Yingluck's legal team will be seeking relief from the attorney-general, Phichit Chuenban said.

The lawyer said that his team would seek fair treatment from the attorney-general, as the NACC had argued against Ms Yingluck's proposed witnesses, used a special investigative process that wrapped up in just 21 days and left Ms Yingluck no opportunity to defend herself over new questions about the release of government rice.
