Former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra told the Supreme Court in her closing statement on Tuesday she had done nothing wrong in handling the rice-pledging programme, a core policy she had committed to implementing to help farmers.

The former prime minister insisted she had never ignored calls for investigation and action when problems arose. She also said she definitely did not collude in or condone corruption involving rice sales.
