Former prime minister Ms Yingluck Shinawatra appeared at the Supreme Court's Criminal Division for Political Office Holders this morning.

Her appearance at the court today is the fourth time to hear testimonies by state prosecutors in the rice pledging scheme which she was accused of dereliction of duties that caused over 500 billion baht damages to the state.

She was welcomed by hundreds of supporters as she arrived with her team of lawyers. Her supporters gave her flowers to boost her spirit in fighting the court case.

Upon arrival, she was asked to comment on a report that the Election Commission will file a civil suit to demand 2.4 billion baht compensation from her over an aborted general election in February 2, 2014.

She said she was surprised to hear about the huge amount of compensation demanded from her as there was a royal decree on the election.
