The Royal Thai Police have hit back at claims from a top prosecutor that they have done nothing to bring international billionaire fugitive Vorayuth Yoovidhya back to Thailand to face justice.

RTP: We are doing all we can to get Red Bull's 'Boss' back to Thailand | News by Samui TimesRTP spokesman Pol Col Krissana Patanacharoen said the Thai police were doing all they can.

And he claimed that foreign police forces such as those in the UK were stalling the hunt.

Criticism had come earlier from a prosecutor at the foreign affairs department that in the six months since a letter was issued demanding action the police had done nothing. A new request was now being made this month.

Pol Col Krissana said that previous attempts to locate Boss in Canada had failed and that the RTP were following up with the UK and other forces. But they had received no word from them as to where the fugitive might be hiding.

He said that Boss had complained to police in France about a notice for his arrest containing errors and that the RTP had sent the police there more details to rectify this three months ago.

He was also asked by reporters why the Red Notice about Boss had apparently been removed from the Interpol site.

He said that the Red Notice was still in the system but that Interpol were responsible for it being posted on their website.

The fugitive is wanted in connection with the death of a Thong Lor policeman in September 2012. Wichian Klanprasert died after being dragged under the wheels of Boss’s Ferrari.

The fugitive is heir to the massive Red Bull drinks empire.
