Interpol alert out for Vorayuth

Post Reporters

Interpol recently issued an international alert, known as a Blue Notice, to its 190 member countries for Red Bull scion Vorayuth Yoovidhya, wanted over a hit-and-run case that killed a police officer in 2012, said a police spokesman.

Pol Col Kritsana Pattanacharoen, deputy spokesman for the Royal Thai Police (RTP), said the Interpol move came after police sought cooperation from the international community to locate Mr Vorayuth.

The Blue Notice has been sent to Interpol's 190 member countries to locate, identify or obtain information on the suspect, he said, adding several countries have already responded saying they have no information about him.

A Blue Notice only allows Interpol to determine the location of a suspect so that prosecutors in charge of the case are able to seek his extradition through diplomatic channels.

Thus, the chances of recovering Mr Vorayuth are almost nil before the statute of limitations runs out on Sept 3 on the second of three charges concerning the 2012 accident which left a policeman dead..


Mr Vorayuth faces two charges in connection with the hit-and-run accident killing Thong Lor traffic police officer Wichian Klanprasert in Bangkok's Thong Lor area.

The statute of limitations for another charge of speeding has expired.
