NACC seeks Yingluck’s indictment

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) has decided to recommend former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra be indicted for dereliction of duty in failing to deal with corruption and losses in the rice-pledging scheme. 

Ex-premier Yingluck Shinawatra has been given permission by the military council to fly to Europe, presumably to attend next week's 65th birthday party for her brother Thaksin in Paris. (AFP file photo)
