Thai police to verify “Boss” whereabouts with UAE embassy

Following recent reports that the elusive Red Bull heir, Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya, is living in Dubai, Thai police say they’re writing to the UAE embassy to verify the claims (the embassy is in Witthayu road… we can send you the address if you need so you can ‘drop in’ and have a chat).

Boss is wanted in relation to a 2012 hit-and-run incident that claimed the life of Wichian Klanprasert, a 47 year old Bangkok policeman. Wichian died after his bike was dragged 100 metres by a Ferrari which then fled the scene. The vehicle was allegedly being driven by Boss.

Incredibly, Boss managed to flee Thailand in 2017. Charges that were initially dropped against him in July this year have recently been re-instated following an independent inquiry. Recently, rumours began circulating that due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, the wanted Red Bull heir is currently living in Dubai. Assistant National Police Chief Jaruwat Waisaya says Thai police are submitting a letter to the embassy of the United Arab Emirates to enquire as to his whereabouts.

“We want to confirm with the local authorities whether he is in the UAE or not. If he is, we will coordinate with them to extradite him to Thailand so he can face trial.”

A red Interpol notice has been issued for Boss, meaning if he enters a country that is a member of Interpol, officials should inform the Royal Thai Police. However, enforcement of the notice is at the discretion of individual countries. The United Arab Emirates is an Interpol member country.

    Assisting or harboring a fugitive should be a crime.

    what is wrong with the United Arab Emirates?
    They hosted the 2018 Interpol assembly there, why did they not notify The Thai police that Yoohidhya had arrived there?
    Is it because he is part of a rich family?

    The rich soy boy gets away with what he gets away with because his family doesn’t cut him off at the knees. They “enable” him. He’s merely the visible proof of a greater familial corruption. Had they paid the widow a sizeable sum and made all the necessary “merit” making signs of begging forgiveness, and not run away like the coward he is, then it would have been better. No.. it wouldn’t have brought the officer back from the dead but the PR would have been valuable.

    Letter? Why not pick up phone and give them a ring? Better yet, an e-mail. Letters take forever, often get delivered to wrong person. But I guess boys in blue know all that.

A man was arrested on animal abuse charges for allegedly catching water monitor lizards, tying them to his motorbike and driving around Prachuap Khri Khan, south of Phetchaburi province.

The man, who is identified as Chaowalit, posted photos on Facebook of lizards tied up to the back of his motorbike. One photo shows a large monitor lizard tied up to the back of the bike, hanging upside-down. Apparently, Chaowalit has been posting photos for about 4 months now on Facebook page on wildlife hunting.

Officials from the Kui Buri National Park were notified about the photos and a team of special unit officers were sent to Chaowalit’s house to arrest him. He was charged with catching and harming protected wildlife as well as violating the Wild Animal Reservation Protection Act. If found guilty, he could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine up to 1 million baht.

A man was arrested on charges of grievous bodily harm after he allegedly sliced his friend’s face with a sickle, causing a gash about 25 centimetres long.

3 men, identified as Saeng, Ta and Rop, had been drinking at a shanty in Phuket’s Rassada district where Rop lived. An argument broke out over money. A bank transfer was apparently made, but no one received any money, according to Rop as he related the story to police.

The men didn’t come to an agreement and ended up going to bed. Ta stayed awake and slapped Saeng twice while he was falling asleep, Rop says. Saeng then got up, grabbed the sickle and swung the hooked blade across Ta’s cheek, Rop says.

Reports don’t go into detail about Ta’s condition, but photos of the scene by the Phuket News show a significant amount of blood on the concrete floor.

Police arrested a woman for allegedly selling and fitting fashion dental retainers and braces. They seized equipment used for making dental casts and retainers found at her home in Ratchaburi and charged 27 year old Mukda Luanrod with illegally fitting fashion dental retainers.

The woman has allegedly been selling the retainers on a Facebook page under the name “Cherdchu Retainer” since November 2017, targeting mostly teenage students. Police say she sold the retainers for 900 baht for one and 1,790 baht for a pair. Sometimes she would offer retainers at 800 baht.

Police tracked Mukda and searched her home in the Domnoen Saduak district, finding 6 dental retainers, 13 dental casts, 89 bags of powder for dental casts, 400 boxes of retainers and other items related to the fashion dental retainers.

In Thailand, braces and retainers are a fashion trend and also seen as a symbol of wealth. Police have cracked down on people selling and producing the fake dental products. Some fake dental braces are found to be made with types of metal that can be harmful to someone’s health if worn for a long period of time.

Mukda’s dental retainers were unhygienic, substandard and posed a risk to customers’ health, according to Wattana Boon-on from the Dental Council of Thailand.

Police are investigating other online businesses that are allegedly selling and producing fashion dental products.
