Thai authorities are ready to send an extradition request to any country able to arrest Red Bull energy drink scion Vorayuth "Boss" Yoovidhya, who faces charges over a hit and run incident in Bangkok five years ago that caused the death of a traffic police officer.

Amnat Chotchai, director-general of the Office of the Attorney-General's (OAG) International Affairs Department, said prosecutors were working with police and the Foreign Ministry to draw up the request in English.

Once Interpol informs Thai authorities of Mr Vorayuth's whereabouts, a written request will be ready to send to any country where he is apprehended within five days, Mr Amnat said.
