Hundreds of Yingluck's supporters came outside of Bangkok's high court buildings.The Supreme Court in Thailand has postponed a ruling session in the case where former ex-prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra has been charged with a criminal offense.The judges in Bangkok have granted his arrest permit saying they do not believe he said he was wrong to come to court because he was ill.
The court has promised to deliver on 27 September.

On Friday, Mrs. Yingluck's lawyers pleaded guilty to the trial and told the court that he was suffering from vertigo and could not reach the corridor.But official reports of the High Court said the prosecutors "do not believe the accused is sick because no medical certificate has been submitted to the court, and that his health status is not so serious that he can not reach the corridor."

The court said he would grant his arrest as he could flee the country, according to the AFP news agency.Likewise, the court granted a $ 900,000 (£ 703,000) deposit which he had deposited at the start of the trial.Mrs. Yingluck, has denied the travel offenses associated with the rice venture cost of billions of dollars.

If he is convicted, he may be imprisoned and also banned from participating in politics throughout his life.Mrs. Yingluck, who was the first prime minister in Thailand in 2011, was expelled from power in 2015.The case against him was presented by a government-sponsored government that removed him from the war.But it's still popular and very strong.

Hundreds of his followers gathered outside the Supreme Court in Bangkok before reading the sentence against him, with a number of police holding out of the court.Mr Yingluck's plan to pay part of the rice cost was part of her main commitment to her election campaign, and launched her in 2011 shortly after she came to power.


The purpose of the program was to strengthen farmers' income and to help reduce poverty in the farms.Under the scheme, the government paid almost two-thirds of rice farmers on the market for their crops.But it seriously affected rice sales from Thailand abroad and led to the loss of more than $ 8bn (£ 6.25bn).The government also had a huge rice load of rice that could not sell.


Although the program was very popular for its followers in the country, opponents denied it saying it was very expensive and gave rise to the possibility of corruption intake.During the hearing of the case against her, Ms. Yingluck said she did not participate in the daily activities of managing the project.
He insisted that he was a victim of political persecution.
