Seems there's life to this long running saga still, and the fugitive may yet need to face justice. =D>
Interpol issues 'red notice' for Thai Red Bull heir over fatal hit and run

Interpol has issued a “red notice” to arrest the fugitive Thai heir to the Red Bull billions over his role in a fatal hit-and-run incident in Bangkok, police have said.

The move by the international police organisation is the latest in the years-long saga surrounding Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya who crashed his Ferrari in 2012, killing a police officer.

The charges against Vorayuth, who is the grandson of Red Bull’s co-founder Chaleo Yoovidhya, were dropped in July, sparking public outrage among the Thai public who saw it as an example of impunity granted the wealthy in the country.

The anger led to investigations being launched by various government agencies including the attorney general’s office, which last month announced fresh charges against Vorayuth of reckless driving causing death, and cocaine use......

I particularly like the piece in another publication which describes what an Interpol Red Notice means
The Interpol red notice means if Boss enters countries that are members of Interpol, they will alert the Royal Thai Police of his location
That seems to be basically it. The RTP don't actually need to do anything else like before.
Theres been a Red Notice on this case before & given a couple of months it quietly disappeared

A Red Notice rather a pointless exercise in this case, everyone knows who he is and everyone ( Police personnel worldwide ) know what he has done , but as the local RTP are as usual not really bothering I am sure it will not ever get acted on . When they know it will take SOOOOOOOOOOO long to get him back that statutory time limits will be enacted and he will be free as he is NOW !

It is a sop to the accusers that the RTP are doing nothing, so the heat of the moment showing the RTP incompetent will eventually be consigned to File 13 ( no action file ) .

From man ex-plods point of view disgusting behaviour by fellow Police Colleagues , but after all the years here, not surprised sadly .

Not so sure i agree ..after the recent public outcry im waging they will do all they can to locate him and get him back here in the near future .. also the statuary time limits i believe have been overridden due to the recent investigation into the original handling of the case... lets face it with the amount of money this young lad has at his disposal he could be anywhere worldwide in the blink of an eye Covid or not .. doe opens doors and im sure hes been doing his home work as to where he can be if his conscience doesnt get the better of him OR he actually misses his family and home land...enough to return of his own accord and face the music (which i think he will) EVENTUALLY

Btw KP .. this is not a jibe just an observation ...but at any point in time do you ever have anything remotely positive to say about Thailand , its people , its culture , life here ANYTHING ????..its been so long since you posted anything other than negativity im wondering if you are happy residing here and maybe Cleethorpes maybe abetter option im sure you can take your feline friends with you.

There is nothing wrong with Thailand, but the institutions are often the cause of much angst, sure you can ignore most of it most of the time, but in this instance being ex-plod, I do feel the RTP have let the side down and their lack of action often speaks volumes, Like the murders of the young couple on Kao Tao, such a debacle , shows us really that serious crime is as inefficiently investigated as the lowly injury to another.
You go to a country hoping that you are reasonably safe, but in fact unless you are really careful you are not . Things have slowly changed for the better un til that is you get a Government Minister blaming all Foreigners then it turns back again . The people are great as are the vast majority of the locals but often as in this case their gloaring inefficiency and blatant disregard for even basic investigation speaks volumes .

AS for anything to do with Cleethorpes or anywhere else in that part of the UK, I would never consider that area except possibly Scarborough many friends were their, some moved on no doubt.

Bearing in mind Cleggy amd Scarbourgh are relatively close togethervon the East Coast.. they are suprizing different , Scabourgh is a nice place whilst Cleggy an oil.covered cesspit of a place as it attracts thenearby Grimsby dreggs...one one good thing a out Cleggs n thats is Steeles fish n chip shop /restaurant ..superb

My fav spot on the East Coast is Whitby .. beautiful harbour.

Back to Boss.. i think he will.be brought to justice one way or the other sooner rather than later ... he would do himself a lot of good he he returned of his own free will ...

Ño clues as to where he is at the Mo ??

I understand that a Red Notice has been issued but I cannot find any trace. Like many, I would like to see the hard copy of this Interpol notice. Any ideas out there ?

This maybe why you cant find

"How many Red Notices are there?
There are currently approximately 62,000 valid Red Notices, of which some 7,000 are public.

The majority of Red Notices are restricted to law enforcement use only.

In some cases, for example where the public’s help is needed to locate an individual or they pose a threat to public safety, a public extract of the Red Notice is published on this website."

Again as a reminder

"A Red Notice is an international wanted persons notice, but it is not an arrest warrant"
