CARETAKER Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra will not report to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) to acknowledge charges related to the rice-pledging scheme as requested next Thursday, a government source said yesterday.



The source close to Yingluck, who asked not to be named, said the PM would send a representative team and submit a written clarification.

Yingluck had not discussed the NACC’s decision to press charges against her with legal advisers, the source said. However, the team representing her would include Council of State members and attorneys, since she, as premier, is a government official.
