Former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra talks to reporter during a press conference in Bangkok, Thailand Friday, July 18, 2014. Yingluck defended herself over the rice subsidy scheme, questioned the fairness of the investigation process and denied rumors that she will go overseas to flee the case. An anti-corruption body has recommended criminal charges against the ousted Thai prime minister over her government's rice subsidy program, which cost the country's billions of dollars.
