No arrest warrants or red notices for the police and other officials who took the backhanders to allow things to get this far.  This country is corrupt beyond redemption.

Jeez, why doesn't Prayuth offer a reward? DUH! It helped the US get info to catch Bin Laden and a host of other terrorist leaders. But, that's too sensible for Thai law enforcement. But, yup, he's probably hanging out with Yingluck

Agreed she is not. Apparently she 'disappeared' before the verdict so didn't appear in court. She isn't stupid.

The lie is that they are both killers, but propaganda is an amazing thing.

Interpol publishes ‘red notice’ for Red Bull’s fugitive Boss

By The Nation

The International Police Organisation (Interpol) has included on its wanted list the fugitive heir to the Red Bull energy drink fortune who has been charged over a fatal car crash that killed a Bangkok policeman five years ago.


Interpol issued the “red notice” for Vorayuth Yoovidhya and made it viewable to law-enforcement personnel last month. On Monday, the notice was made available for public viewing through the Interpol website.

 

The announcement urged those who have information of his whereabouts to contact police.

 

Vorayuth, who is better known as “Boss”, is listed as being wanted in Thailand on charges of reckless driving causing the death of another person, causing damage to another person, not stopping to aid an injured person and not reporting to officials.

 

The Interpol announcement also said he was wanted for driving under the influence of alcohol causing death and driving more than the allowed speed limit.

 

According to Thai police, all charges except reckless driving causing the death of another person have expired. He initially faced four charges of speeding, drunk driving, fleeing the scene of an accident and causing death by dangerous driving.

 

The statute of limitation on fleeing the scene of an accident, which carries up to six months in jail, expired recently, while the speeding and drunk-driving charges have been expired for some time. The remaining charge, which carries a penalty of up to 10 years in jail, will run out in 2027.

 

Vorayuth is alleged to have ploughed his Ferrari into a policeman riding a motorbike in Bangkok in 2012, dragging the officer to his death, while driving drunk.

 

After years of giving prosecutors the run around, the now 35-year-old billionaire has become an emblem for the impunity enjoyed by the rich and connected in an unequal Thailand.

 

Earlier this year he fled the Kingdom after an arrest warrant was finally issued following a series of no shows at police interviews.

Betcha this guy won`t serve even one day in prison. Unlike the guy who drove his pickup the wrong way on a motorway resulting in the death of a baby who the police will throw the book at him.

I doubt any civilized country would force a man back to a military run country, guilty or not. I think the huys scum, but he'll never be back

A good starting point for Interpol would be the Red Bull Suite at the Singapore Grand Prix this weekend.  He's arrogant enough that he thinks that no one will arrest him but who knows.  Singapore is known to have tough law enforcement, you get fined for chewing gum there!

Glad that they finally got around to it, but they could have done this 5 years ago.
