Yingluck calls on NACC to treat her other politicians

Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra Friday called on the National Anti-Corruption Commission to treat her like other politicians, saying she was given too short time to defend herself.

She was charged with malfeasance for allegedly failing to stop corruption in the rice-pledging scheme.

Yingluck said she had only three days for studying 280 pages of documents obtained from the NACC.

The NACC Thursday declined to extend the deadline for Yingluck to defend herself. The NACC asked her to defend herself to the NACC on Monday.

Yingluck said she had yet to consult her lawyers as to whether she would meet the NACC in person to provide an explanation or not.
