PM orders body of key witness in “Boss” to be kept for further examination




Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has ordered the body of Mr. Jaruchart Mardthong, a deceased key witness in the Red Bull heir hit-and-run case, to be kept for further examination to determine the exact cause of the death.


Ms. Traisulee Traisoranakul, Deputy Government Spokesperson, said on Sunday that the Prime Minister wants to clear any public suspicion about Mr. Jaruchart’s death, but he will not interfere with course of justice.


She said that the Prime Minister has attached importance to the hit-and-run case and public suspicion over the decision of the Office of the Attorney-General (OAG) to drop the case against suspect, Mr. Vorayuth Yoovidhya, heir to the Red Bull empire.

very strange, now they are saying he died after colliding with another bike,  looking back at the video there does appear to be another bike behind him but this is not what they were saying originally. Maybe the pm realizes there is going to be a lot of people getting pretty irate over boss having the arrest warrants pulled so he is making sure it doesnt catch him as well especially with his and his govts popularity plumetting, might even mean boss remains wanted hopefully, only time will tell

PM orders autopsy after witness in Vorayuth hit-and-run case killed in 'accident'

By The Nation




Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha, has ordered an autopsy after Jaruchat Madthong, a key witness in the high-profile hit-and-run case allegedly involving Vorayuth "Boss" Yoovidhya, was killed in a motorcycle accident, Deputy Government Spokeswoman Traisuree Taisaranakul said on Sunday.


The prime minister has vowed to pursue justice in the case and punish any officer who has committed an offence, Traisuree said.


Saman and Ta Wang-Moon, the adoptive parents of Jaruchat, were contacted by government officials. The couple agreed to release the body for the post-mortem, but requested the completion of religious ceremonies being held on Sunday.


Jaruchat was killed in a motorcycle accident in the early hours of Thursday. Somchai Tavino, 50, who was involved in the fatal crash with Jaruchat, told Chiang Mai police that he did not know the deceased before.


However, police study of CCTV footage showed on Saturday (Aug 1) that the two had met before the bike accident occurred. Police then summoned Somchai to question him again.


On being confronted by the evidence, Somchai revealed that they had met at a liquor shop and persuaded each other to continue drinking at another shop, before they rode away on their motorcycles. Somchai claimed that he had misinformed the police initially as he was drunk.


Chiang Rai native Jaruchat was one of two key witnesses in the case against Vorayuth. Jaruchat had testified that the Ferrari was travelling at around 50-60kph when his car crashed into a bike ridden by a policeman, causing his death.
