Interpol launched request to capture Red Bull heir accused of killing a police in Thailand

Interpol issued a red alert asking for the capture of Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya, heir to the Red Bull empire, accused of killing a policeman in Bangkok in 2012 and fleeing the scene behind the wheel of his Ferrari

The announcement in July that the charges against the grandson of the founder of the energy drink brand had been dropped caused a major uprising in the kingdom. The case became a symbol of the privileges of the country’s elite and the Red Bull logo was used in student protests, which demand more democracy.

After the protests, a new investigation was launched in early August and a new international arrest warrant was issued against Vorayuth Yoovidhya for “reckless driving that led to a death” and cocaine use. Thai police spokesman Colonel Krissana Pattanacharoen confirmed that Interpol issued a red notification during the week, a procedure to ask security forces in the 194 Interpol member countries to locate and detain a person.
