Interpol issues ‘red notice’ for Thai Red Bull heir over hit-and-run

Interpol has issued a “red notice” to arrest the fugitive Thai heir to the Red Bull billions for his role in a fatal hit-and-run, police said on Sunday. 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, were dropped in July – sparking public outrage from Thais who saw it as an example of impunity enjoyed by the kingdom’s elite.

It spurred probes 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.

National Police deputy spokesman Colonel Kissana Phathanacharoen confirmed Sunday a red notice – Interpol’s most urgent alert – was issued earlier this week. “After we received the confirmation, we then passed our request to 194 member countries asking for assistance from them,” he told AFP.
