BANGKOK — Police said the results of their investigation into the fatal car crash caused by Jenphop Viraporn will be forwarded to prosecutors by April 26, about six weeks after the accident drew national attention.
Deputy national police chief Pongsapat Pongcharoen said Tuesday that investigators were collecting all available evidence for the attorney general’s office to bring a court case against Jenphop, a wealthy businessman who killed two graduate students in a fiery wreck March 13.
“I believe we will definitely be able to send the case to the prosecutor by April 26,” Gen. Pongsapat said.
Pongsapat said he’s confident the evidence will pin Jenphop to the crime, despite the fact he was allowed to refuse a sobriety test immediately after the accident. Jenphop remained hospitalized for what was described as head and knee injuries until this past weekend.
“I don’t think it will be any problem, because there is other evidence and components that can be used in the case, to increase the weight of conviction against the perpetrator,” the deputy police chief said.
