Thai attorney general's office plans to indict ex-PM over rice subsidy program

BANGKOK – The office of Thailand's attorney general on Friday announced plans to indict former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra for her role in overseeing a government rice subsidy program that lost billions of dollars and temporarily cost Thailand its place as the world's leading exporter.

The announcement comes the same day as Thailand's junta-appointed legislature is due to vote on whether to impeach Yingluck for the subsidy program, a move which would ban her from politics for five years.
