The police investigating the fatal car accident implicating the Red Bull energy drink heir have mishandled the case for not charging the suspect with drunk driving, Pol Lt-Gen Sanit Mahathavorn, acting commissioner of metropolitan police, told a press conference today (Monday).
Pol Lt-Gen Sanit admitted that he could not tell whether the dropping of the drunk driving charge by the police concerned amounted to aiding the suspect or not because he didn’t want to implicate any governmental agency concerned.
But as far as the police are concerned, he said that the police could not re-investigate the case against the Red Bull heir. “It is the duty of the prosecutor to decide,” he added.
The speeding charge was automatically dropped because it was not proceeded with the public prosecution within the period of the statue of limitations.
The acting commissioner went on saying that he ordered additional investigation into the issue related to the driver working in the residence of Yuwitthaya family who claimed that he was the driver of the Ferrari which crushed to death a Thonglor traffic policeman on the night of September 3, 2012. The driver later retracted his confession.
