Yingluck's lawyer reviews rice-case evidence

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) yesterday allowed the lawyer of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to review evidence against her in the rice-pledging case.

The NACC has decided to charge Yingluck with neglect of duty for failing to stop the scheme from damaging the state. The lawyer asked to review the evidence on behalf of Yingluck on grounds that anti-government protests made it unsafe and inconvenient for the prime minister to go to the NACC's office.
