‘No double standards’ in dropping of charges against Red Bull heir

Deputy National Police spokesman, Pol Colonel Kissana Phathanacharoen, insisted on Friday (July 24) that there were no double standards in the case of Red Bull heir Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya.

 

 

His remarks came after the Office of the Attorney-General decided to drop all charges against Vorayuth in a 2012 hit-and-run case.

 

Vorayuth allegedly crashed his Ferrari into a policeman on a motorbike in Bangkok’s Thonglor area and fled the scene, dragging the officer’s body for several dozen metres.

 

Meanwhile, a relevant police committee said it has consulted its own legal team and is not against the attorney-general’s decision.

 

The arrest warrant against Vorayuth will also be revoked and police will coordinate with Interpol to do the same. This means the Red Bull heir can return to Thailand.

 

Kissana said related officials have handled the case in the line with the law and there were no double standards. The public prosecutors had asked the investigators to provide details on several issues and police officers in charge of the case had met the demand every time, he said.

 

He added that if the police were to disagree with the attorney-general’s decision then it will have to be based on evidence, not social trends.

He also denied claims that police had handled the case in favour of Vorayuth, adding that the Royal Thai Police regrets the loss and never wants such an incident to be repeated.

 

Kissana also dismissed comments such as “jails are only for the poor”.

 

Vorayuth is the grandson of late Chaleo Yoovidhya, a co-creator of Red Bull energy drink, who was listed as the third richest person in Thailand at the time of his death in 2012.

Just like the old saying: Money talks BS walk... really, why did it took them so long to drop the charges if they thought that he's not guilty and the is no case to answer here? haven't they thought for a minute how will it look in the eye of the public after all this brouhaha of trying to find him and bring his to justice and now poof, no charges...

Just a load of BS, did he kill the policeman?

The Attorney general is an absolute disgrace, should hang his head in shame.

Perhaps another one who's got a financial incentive not to?

'how will it look in the eye of the public' It's not as if they give a fig what it looks like - domestically anyway.

Lots of money has changed hands no doubt. Ateotd, a policeman doing his duty was slain and yet a little tit walks. Hoping the youth sort out the place.

Hmm, I'm hoping too.

However, going on previous occasions when this has been tried, those with the money don't give a sh!t about a few hundred students deaths, as long as they don't lose their positions or money.

New slogan for TAT as Boss will be at the helm.

 

"Why fly to Thailand on an airplane when Redbull gives you Wings"

Red BS.

It's all the fault of TV-members, whatever hit-and-run incident (and they are common), someone of you was pulling parallels to Red Bull, so I think the authorities had no other choice to do what they did.  (Sarcasm off)

Yep, I'm sure the Shinawatra's are having a good old laugh at that heading.

 

You never know, to balance things out and to appease the masses, tomorrow's headline might just read that the PM has now agreed to drop all charges relating to the Shinawatra's and that they are now welcome to return to Thailand.........well, we know that ain't going to happen, don't we.

I guess after looking back at the case, the AG decided the existing evidence wasn't conclusive. I guess the 30 mil they gave the family should be returned!

Time to search for bank accounts of the mia nois of all of those that have let him off.  These geniuses are too smart to put the newly found funds in their own names or their wives names aren't they?

Well, if you insist, then I feel absolutely compelled to believe you. 

 

Pull the other one, it's got bells! 

 

How things are done here was never anything to look up to or be proud of, but it sure does seem like the whole system has been deteriorating rapidly in the past few years. So much for the party flouting how they're going to stamp out corruption and bring back happiness to the people. 

The place is rotting to the core. 

A fish rots from the head down.

Where does the 30 mil number come from ?

 

Way back when the family was given 3 million in exchange for not pressing charges.

I guess all that is left now to complete this fiasco is to send the repair bill for the Ferrari to the late Policeman's family....:bah:

It’s not so long ago when the PM asked wealthy companies to donate monies to get the country back on its feet no one came forward a few days later the alcohol ban was extended yet within days it was lifted we then were told that wealthy companies had come forward to make Financial donations It would be interesting to know which companies were so kind in donating .

Are you talking about this request ?
