bangkok - The former prime minister of Thailand Yingluck Shinawatra was in tears before the Bangkok court in Bangkok where she was under great interest because of negligence. Reason was rumored with subsidies for rice that cost the country billions.
'The rice program was fair and correct,' said a cheeky Yingluck. Through the subsidy, the country bought rice at a price that was higher than the market price to sell it later at a higher price. The system failed, however, and Thailand incurred a loss of over 6.7 billion euros.
It was mainly Yingluck's electoral backbone who benefited from the cash flow. The former prime minister, who was deployed in 2014 by a coup, believes that the whole country benefited. She is assaulting a ten-year imprisonment sentence.
