Extradition documents ready to return Vorayuth to Thailand

THE FORMAL documents to extradite fugitive Red Bull heir Vorayuth Yoovidhya have been completed and the process to return him to Thailand to face charges of reckless driving causing death will begin immediately after he is found, a senior official said yesterday.

 

Amnat Chotchai, director-general of the International Affairs Department, said his department was responsible for contacting the foreign country if Vorayuth, 35, is located to arrange for his extradition.

 

“All extradition documents are ready. When Vorayuth is arrested in any country, we will just fill in the name of that country. We can forward the documents to get the signature of the Attorney-General within five days,” Amnat said.

 

Thai authorities have increased hopes that Vorayuth will be arrested after Interpol last week put him on a worldwide wanted list.

 

Vorayuth, also known as “Boss”, allegedly ploughed his Ferrari into a policeman riding a motorbike in Bangkok in 2012, dragging the officer to his death, while driving drunk.

 

He was facing four charges, but the statute of limitations expired for three of them, leaving only the charge of reckless driving causing death, which will expire in 2027.

 

The delay in finding and prosecuting Vorayuth has led to criticism that authorities were reluctant to put him in jail because he is the wealthy heir to the Red Bull empire.

 

Vorayuth sneaked out of the country in April. However, a foreign news agency tracked him down in the UK, while Thai authorities claimed they did not know his whereabouts. 

 

The report caused outrage in Thailand with people questioning authorities’ sincerity in prosecuting him.

 

If police in a foreign country arrest Vorayuth, Amnart said, they could detain him according to their laws.

 

After Interpol notifies Thai police of the arrest, they will inform the Attorney-General’s Office. 

 

If Vorayuth is arrested in a country that has an extradition treaty with Thailand, the process to return him to Thailand would follow set procedures, Amnat said. If he is found in a country that does not have a treaty with Thailand, the Foreign Ministry would handle the case on a reciprocal basis with diplomatic discussions.

 

Thailand has signed extradition treaties with the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Belgium, China and Hong Kong, South Korea, Indonesia, Australia, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Bangladesh, Fiji, Malaysia and India.

He is probably in Thailand safe from extradition. Interpol is being made a fool of. Could be in the home on Sukhumvit he went to after running down the police officer. Interpol cannot find him if he is safe at home in his home country.

Why all the inaccuracies.  He did plough his ferrari into the cop.. He said he was driving after that lame duck attempt to fit up the family butler was foiled.

The whole thing including the interpol list is hollow while the statute clock is ticking while he is knowingly on the run.

Farcical, nothing more nothing less

10 years is a lot of ticks on that clock.

Unlikely scenario, but certainly a possible one, hiding on a foreign passport under an assumed name. However, the way things often seem to operate in Thailand, suspects are expected to obligingly turn themselves in or stop at check points. Still seems unlikely that the lad will be face charges any time soon.

Not when you've got more money than god, and you're living in a country with no extradition treaty that's just as corrupt as Thailand is.

According to a Thai i know that could be described as inside a certain business, this Punk is in China by special request from certain people here. He is able to have an office there and do his business virtually unhindered.  Big Daddy China looks after people who are connected to certain families.
