A senior public prosecutor in the case of alleged cop killer Vorayuth Yoovidhya said they have seven years until the case runs out.

 

Back in September 2012 the heir to the Red Bull drinks empire better known as "Boss" walked away scot free after dragging a policeman under the wheels of his Ferrari in the Thong Lo area of Bangkok. 

 

Investigations have taken place to try and uncover malfeasance in the police handling of the case. 

 

Meanwhile Boss fled abroad and despite being on an Interpol most wanted list he has never been brought to justice. 

 

Commenting on the stalled case deputy public prosecutor  Prayut Petchrakhun said that if Boss steps back into Thailand he will be arrested.

But the statute of limitations runs out on the crime on September 3rd 2027 - 15 years after the alleged crime. 

 

After this time he cannot be prosecuted in Thailand.

 

Prayut said that the case falls into the categories needed to extradite a fugitive. 

 

But the prosecutor's office will only act if they are instructed to do so by the Royal Thai Police. 

 

It was clear that no such instructions have been issued to change the status quo recently. 

 

Boss remains free abroad.

Plenty of time for a few more brown envelopes to change hands then. Good for them.

He's IN the country!  Go figure. 🙂

I rather suspect so - he is much less likely to be arrested here than in any foreign country. Just keep your profile nice and low for the next seven years and you're away.
