Former attorney-general Atthapol Yaisawang has appealed to critics to not blame public prosecutors for allegedly dragging their feet in taking legal action against Red Bull heir, resulting to three cases being dropped due to expiration of their statute of limitations.
He cited Boss’s appeal to the National Legislative Assembly’s panel for legal, judicial process and police affairs complaining of incomplete investigation by the public prosecutors, making it impossible for the prosecutors to ignore.
Mr Atthapol explained that the OAG took the NLA’s letter in response to Boss’s appeal as a serious matter and had to comply with the request which eventually caused a delay of the case.
He insisted that it was the discretion of the public prosecutors to accept the appeal for consideration and, hence, the delay in the indictment against the Red Bull heir.
“The regulation regarding an appeal for justice from an accused or a suspect was meant to ensure justice for all suspects or accuseds no matter whether they are rich or poor. But the appeal must be reasonable and it is the discretion of the people directly in charge of the case to decide whether the appeal is just a trick to delay the case or not,” Mr Atthapol explained.
Noting that the relatives of the victim had already been taken care of by Boss’s family even before the legal proceedings are over, the former attorney-general said that all the biased comments regarding Boss’s case that were shared in the social media had caused misunderstanding on factual aspect.
He then appealed to members of the public to exercise caution before making comments on the case, especially in the social media.
He said the online society has behaved as if they were the kangaroo court and made judgments without waiting for legal process to run its course.Facebook.
