The translated document was sent to the Foreign Affairs Division of the Royal Thai Police Office yesterday (July 20), Lt Gen Sanit Mahathaworn said.

If the national police chief signed his name in the paper, it would be sent to the Office of the Attorney-General, which would proceed with the extradition attempt for Vorayuth, he said.

The destination country had an extradition agreement with Thailand, Lt Gen Sanit said. He would not name the country. He admitted that process might be slow.

A source said the police Foreign Affairs Division would check the translated document before proposing it to the national police chief for signing. The process could take a few days.

On Tuesday (July 18), Lt Gen Sanit said that the Foreign Affairs Division had not translated the 33-page extradition request. He ordered that a certified private translation service be used for the job.

The outsourced translation was sought after a senior public prosecutor said the police had still not sent the extradition request to the Office of the Attorney-General.

Before dawn on Sept 3, 2012, a black Ferrari allegedly driven by Vorayuth, now 31, slammed into the rear of a motorcycle ridden by 47-year-old Snr Sgt Maj Wichian Klanprasert of Thong Lor Police Station. His mangled body was dragged along Sukhumvit Rd before the vehicle sped away.

Vorayuth has delayed hearing the charges seven times, citing various reasons. It was not until April 27 this year that prosecutors finally charged him with reckless driving causing death and failing to help a crash victim.

A speeding charge was dropped as its one-year statute of limitations had expired.

His passport was cancelled and an arrest warrant was issued for him after he flew out of Thailand on his private plane two days before he was due to report to answer the charges.

He was seen leaving a residence in London in April.
