Investigation panel pushes for ‘Boss’ case to be reopened

By The Nation




The investigation committee looking into the Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya case will call on the attorney general to slap the suspect with charges of using cocaine and speeding. 


This decision was announced at the Office of the Attorney General on Tuesday (August 4) in the daily update on the investigation into the prosecutor’s decision to drop charges against the Red Bull scion, who allegedly ran over and killed a police officer in 2012. 


Meanwhile, Prayut Petchkhun, deputy spokesman for the attorney-general, said the decision to drop charges made by Nate Naksuk, director general of the Department of Appellate Litigation, was within the line of law. 


However, he said, the substance found in the suspect’s blood was reportedly cocaine and the attorney-general has decided to reopen the case as its statute of limitations is not yet up. 


As for speeding, an expert has been invited to provide an academic opinion at the Office of Forensic Science, which will be considered new evidence to reopen the case.

But then again, if he was under influence and in case he was driving over the speed limit, he would have at least partial fault in the fatal accident and should then still be charged.


Ohh sorry, I forgot. This is Thailand...
