Prosecutors have received from police the request for the extradition of Vorayuth "Boss" Yoovidhya, a Red Bull energy drink scion wanted in a hit-in run case, but they cannot proceed because it doesn’t specify the country.

Amnat Chotchai, head of foreign affairs at the Attorney General’s Office, said on Thursday his office had received the request after a delay stemming from translation.

"However, the document does not specify the country so we can’t proceed. Once the police tell us where he lives, we'll contact that country if it has an extradition agreement with Thailand. If it doesn’t, there are other channels to bring him back, he added.
