BANGKOK — A media report on Thursday night said the prosecutor decided not to indict a member of an ultra-rich family accused of killing a policeman and fleeing the scene in 2012.

CNN quoted police as saying that all charges against Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya, an heir to the family behind the Red Bull franchise, were dropped due to the decision by the Attorney General.

The police are reportedly working on revoking an arrest warrant for Vorayuth – which was issued five years after the deadly crash and just five days before he fled the country unopposed in 2017.

Vorayuth never answered summonses from prosecutors since he plowed his Ferrari into a patrol motorcycle in Bangkok’s nightlife area in 2012, killing a junior ranking policeman named Wichian Klanprasert, and fled the scene.

He spent much of the following years living a jet-setting life, flying in and out of the country freely without any apparent attempts by the police to arrest him, according to an investigative report by The Associated Press.

Police only issued an arrest warrant after the public outcry at the revelation, though investigators never took a serious effort to locate and extradite Vorayuth.

Vorayuth has never made a public comment on the case, but his lawyer said the suspect was treated unfairly by the police.

relatives of Sergeant-Major Wichian have said little about the case. As usually happens in these situations, the Yoovidhya family have paid them a large sum of money, around $100,000.

Interesting that the driver gave the grieving family less than the car's worth.

It would not be surprising, if the repair on the car was more costly than what they valued the life of the victim to be worth.
also : note to self... never buy red bull again.

As Trink in his column would often write  "Any comment would be superfluous". There will be a few comments made around the ridges over this one.

             Thank goodness for spell checkers.  Now I can sort of understand what I type.

The Marquis St. Evrémonde's carriage heads for his country chateau through the streets of Paris, at the break-neck pace favored by the nobility. Although most pedestrians scatter in terror, his carriage runs over a little child; being one of Gaspard's. The Marquis shows no remorse at the sight of the crushed body — inquiring whether his horses are alright — and, "with the air of a gentleman who had accidentally broke some common thing, and had paid for it", throws a gold coin to the distraught father.

Thailand orders new investigation into Red Bull heir's alleged hit and run

Charges against Vorayuth Yoovidhya for killing a policeman in 2012 were dropped last month

 

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/aug/04/thailand-orders-new-investigation-into-red-bull-heir-vorayuth-yoovidhya-alleged-hit-and-run

A spokesman cited new evidence relating to the speed at which Vorayuth was driving prior to the crash, previously said to have been around 80 kph (50 mph). According to an expert opinion previously not included in the police report, Vorayuth had driven at around 170 kph (105 mph).

“This case is not over because the law says if there is new evidence, we are able to proceed,” Prayut Phetkun, the office’s deputy spokesman said.

 

End quote.

 

Stunk by criticism and threats of a boycott of the sugary drink Red Bull insisted that Vorayuth had no operational responsibilities within the company.

Jaruchart was one of two new witnesses brought into the Vorayuth case two years ago, alongside retired air marshal Jakkrit Thanomkulabutr.

They testified that Vorayuth was not driving at high speed and that they saw the motorcycle ridden by Police Senior Sergeant Major Wichian Klanprasert had cut in front of Vorayuth's Ferrari on Sept 3, 2012.

Their testimony led to the closure of the high-profile case involving Vorayuth after prosecutors in June dropped the charge of fatal reckless driving against him.

Somchai told police after Thursday's accident that he did not know Jaruchart.

However, he later said they first met while drinking at separate tables at a restaurant the night of the crash, and they were on their way to find another drinking spot when the accident happened.

I thought the drugs excuse sounded a bit unlikely:

Quote

Dentists do not use cocaine as an anaesthetic on patients, the president of the Dental Council said on Friday, pouring cold water on the excuse police used for not filing a drug charge against Red Bull heir Vorayuth Yoovidhya.

Pojanart Poomprakobsri, the council president, was responding to a report that police were aware of cocaine in Mr Vorayuth’s system after a fatal hit-and-run in 2012 but decided not to press a narcotics charge because the drug had been used in dental treatment.

Dentists no longer used cocaine because its anaesthetic effect was short-lived, and it has been linked to hypertension and impact on the hearts of patients, Mr Pojanart said.

I must be getting soft in my old age. I'd just as soon drop all charges if the Red Bull guy would just buy Thailand a Chinese submarine.

Well well.

This has been such a problematic case as Khun Vorayuth Yoovidhya has been busy working overseas. However the Thai Government has done a phenomenal handling this case. Foreign governments have much to learn from Thailand and its fair judicial system.

What a coincidence eh. 🤣🤣 

Lots of conflicting reports abounding today - some saying the Red Notice maybe doesn’t exist at all. Others pointing out the Austrian police are not obligated to act even if it does.
