Former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Wednesday made merit according to Buddhist tradition, two days before the Supreme Court's Criminal Division for Political Office Holders delivers its verdict against her.

Yingluck started by giving alms to 17 monks at her residence in Bangkok before travelling to Wat Rakhang Khositaram to release fish and pray to the statue of the sacred Somdet Phra Buddhacarya, famously known as Somdej Toh.

Yingluck is to receive the court’s ruling on her alleged negligence in the controversial rice-pledging scheme, which allegedly inflicted financial damage on the state budget on Friday.
