  2. Police told to obtain arrested warrant for Red Bull heir ‘Boss’ By The Nation BANGKOK: -- Public prosecutors issued a letter on Friday instructing officers at Bangkok's Thong Lor police station to apply for an arrest warrant for Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya, heir to the Red Bull fortune. He is accused of running over and killing a police officer in 2012, but again failed to meet the prosecutors on Thursday. Sutthi Kittisupaporn, chief of the Department of Southern Bangkok Criminal Litigation, said on Friday that his office had already asked Thong Lor police to locate and bring to the prosecutors the 31-year-old grandson of the late Red Bull co-founder Chaleo Yoovidhya. If police couldn't locate him, the office instructed them to apply at the Southern Bangkok Criminal Court for an arrest warrant so he can face the prosecutors' indictment decision. Vorayuth, who has repeatedly ignored previous summonses and is yet to be charged with a crime, was due to face his accusers on Thursday over the hit-and-run death of police Senior Sgt-Major Wichean Klinprasert on Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Road in September 2012. After Vorayuth’s lawyer again requested a postponement on the grounds that he was “preoccupied” overseas, prosecutors said he had obviously been stalling. The statute of limitation has since expired for the charges of speeding and reckless driving causing property damage, but Vorayuth remains accused of reckless driving resulting in death, which has a 15-year statute of limitation, and refusing to stop to assist a victim, for which the statute ends in September. The first offence carries a maximum jail term of 10 years and the latter six months. Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/news/national/30313665 -- © Copyright The Nation 2017-04-28

  4. Prawit crosses swords with Yingluck over state spending By The Nation BANGKOK: -- Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan on Friday got involved in an online argument with former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra over state spending, comparing the rice mortgage scheme to the submarine purchase. Both rebuked each other, claiming the other have caused more damage to the state. Yingluck questioned on Facebook whether the damage done to the state budget by the Prayut government’s submarine purchase was any different from her rice mortgage scheme, that she is facing charges under by the Prayut government. Prawit responded saying that the money lost in Yingluck’s rice mortgage scheme could have purchased as many as 50 submarines. He said instead of posting on Facebook, Yingluck should cooperate with officials and answer all the questions surrounding the scheme. The Navy would hold a press conference on Monday to clarify all issues concerning the submarine purchase, Prawit said. The Navy has proposed buying three submarines, and Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said it’s was the two purchases with one given as a free bonus. The Cabinet has approved the purchase of one submarine, priced Bt13.5 billion. The total budget is set as Bt36 billion. Questions have been raised over the need for the country to have submarines while the economy is sluggish.

  7. Six injured in explosion at Rayong steak shop By The Nation BANGKOK: -- An explosion believed to have been caused by a cooking gas leakage at a steak shop in Rayong injured six people, three of them seriously, on Friday morning. Police said the explosion occurred at a three-storey shophouse in Tambon None Phra in Rayong’s Mueang district at 9.10 am. Three male Cambodian workers suffered severe burns as they cooked in the shop’s basement kitchen. The injured also included shop customers. Shop owner Papatchaya Thirapaspipat, 45, said the explosion occurred when one worker turned on a microwave oven. She said the explosion might be caused by leakage from the cooking gas cylinder. The whole kitchen room was damaged and the impact caused the concrete wall at the back of the shop to be hurled three metres. Authorities sealed off the building pending a structural safety check. Forensic science police have yet to confirm the cause of the explosion. Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/news/national/30313661 -- © Copyright The Nation 2017-04-28
