Yingluck, flanked by hundred of red-clad supporters, appeared outside the court steps Friday where she called for a fair trial.
"I know that the rice [subsidy] scheme benefited hundreds of poor farmers around the country," she told reporters.
The junta said earlier this week that corruption and losses from the scheme totaled 287 billion baht ($8.20 billion).
The former premier also urged citizens to get out and vote Sunday, when the country holds a constitutional referendum, adding that it was an important moment for Thailand.
Yingluck released a statement on social media Tuesday saying she would reject the suggested constitution because it was undemocratic.
