BANGKOK: -- Former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra plans to make her own verbal closing statement to the court in response to charges against her of negligence for failing to prevent corruption in the controversial rice-pledging scheme during her tenure.

 

“I want to make the statement myself,” she said.

 

“I’m confident in my evidence presented to the court that I’m innocent and not neglectful,” she said. 

 

The ex-premier was speaking when she arrived at the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Political Office Holders on Friday morning.

 

Today's hearing is the second last as the court set the last round for July 21. After the last hearing, the court will allow the plaintiff and defendants to make closing statements. They can choose to submit the statements in documents or make verbal statements. 

 

She said she will ask for more witnesses to testify.

 

Yingluck also said she was in good spirits and pleaded with the junta not to view her supporters as political. They were only displaying love and care for her, she said.

 

Every time she has attended court, a huge number of her supporters have turned out to support her. Security authorities earlier said they will employ more military in addition to police force to help keep order at the final hearing on July 21.

Are we to expect a Perry Mason moment type of dramatic closing arguments or

more like ' it wasn't me, and I 'm so sorry and I promises 

to do it do it again

plea, begging for the court's mercy?....

"Goodbye Thailand - Hello Montenegro" might get a standing ovation.

Oh dear, more dumping on the lovely Yingluck. So what if she was derelict in her duties, ignored warnings? She basically had no choice, her piece of garbage Father/Brother (??????) was using her as his pawn. Yeah I suppose if Yingluck had a backbone she could have told Thaksin to go pound salt but this is Thailand and the men always have the power. Anyhow, I will be in the court with a bouquet of red roses lending my support and affection to my dream Thai lady, the lovely Yingluck.
