Jet-setting monk back in Bangkok to face charges

Disgraced former monk Nen Kham arrived in Bangkok from the United States on Wednesday night with a team of prosecutors and Department of Special Investigation (DSI) officials.
Wirapol Sukphol, 38, formerly Nen Kham, was escorted from California on an airliner to Tokyo and was switched to Thai Airways International flight TG677 for the final leg to Bangkok.

He wore Buddhist robes despite having been dismissed from the clergy.

DSI director-general Paisit Wongmuang and other officials were waiting for the former monk at the airport, from where he was whisked to the DSI for interrogation after going through the immigration process.

Pol Col Paisit said on Wednesday that the questioning process could drag on until Thursday morning and the flamboyant former monk will then be sent to court for detention.  thank you

Mr Wirapol, whose monastic name is Luang Pu Nen Kham Chattiko, fled the country for the US in 2013 and was sent back under the extradition agreement between the two countries after he was arrested in July last year.

The former abbot of Khantitham forest monastery in Kanthararom district of Si Sa Ket province [b]will face f[b]ive charges concerning money laundering, child abduction, raping a girl under 15, violations of the Computer Crime Act and fraud. [/b][/b] no comment

   No 200 baht fine will help you Monsignieuere

You could even make a lesson for your high school students. The article is from their education page and all vocabulary in Thai available. Great teaching stuff about real events.

Why always Sisaket? One monk donated the city of Sisaket 50 million baht for the new ( now already older hospital).

What's wrong with the monkhood? If that's only the tip of the iceberg, then it's time to see monks ( of course not all of them) with a different view and money for a "Tamboon" might not be in your best interest.
