Prosecutor who dropped charges against Red Bull heir resigns

AMID the furore over the withdrawal of the charges against Red Bull heir Vorayuth Yoovidhya in a hit-and-run incident that led to a policeman’s death in 2012, the Deputy Attorney-General who signed this order resigned today (August 11), INN News reported.

Mr. Net Naksuk is due to retire from management level service on September 30 as he has already turned 65. However he could continue as senior prosecutor till the age of 70, but this is at the discretion of the Public Prosecutor Board.

According to section 58 of the Public Prosecutor Act any public prosecutor who wants to resign from service should submit the resignation to the director supervisor for the Attorney-General to consider.

He or she vacates the office once the Attorney-General gives permission to leave.

However if the prosecutor is resigning to take up a political position, or to run in an election, or to join an independent constitutional organization, his resignation is effective from the day he submits it.

Should the Attorney-General deem that it is necessary he could suspend the resignation for maximum three months.

If the Attorney-General himself wants to resign then he would have to submit his resignation to the board.

However there is no word yet that the Attorney-General has approved Net’s resignation.
