An heir to the Red Bull fortune has refused to answer questions about whether he will return to Thailand this month to meet with prosecutors over an alleged hit-and-run that killed a police officer almost five years ago.

Vorayuth "Boss" Yoovidhya was silent Wednesday as The Associated Press asked about his plans. Standing outside a London residence, he didn't say why he was in Britain or whether he will meet with prosecutors in Thailand April 27.

He has been ordered to face charges of hit-and-run and reckless driving in the 2012 death. He has not appeared for earlier meetings with prosecutors, including last week, but no arrest warrant has been issued.

An AP inquiry has shown that he has been living a lavish lifestyle in the years since the crash.
