  • US Extradites Fraudulent, Womanizing Monk To Thailand For Prosecution

Disgraced former monk Nen Kham arrived in Bangkok from the United States last night (July 19) with a team of prosecutors and Department of Special Investigation (DSI) officials.

Wirapol Sukphol, 37, appeared on a YouTube video showing the orange-robed monk aboard a private jet.

Soon after the video surfaced in 2013, Wirapol was defrocked amid accusations of multiple sexual relationships with women - a cardinal sin for monks.

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

Later in 2013 he was accused of having sex with an under-aged girl and fled to the USA soon afterwards.

Wirapol returned to Bangkok late Wednesday under an extradition agreement with the United States.

The former abbot of Khantitham forest monastery in Kanthararom district of Si Sa Ket province will face five charges concerning money laundering, child abduction, raping a girl under 15, violations of the Computer Crime Act and fraud.

Thai authorities suspected the monk, Wirapol Sukphol, of laundering money after discovering Sukphol had 41 bank accounts through which he kept $5.9 million in circulation, according to Religion News Service.

According to the Department of Special Investigation, Wirapol at one point had accumulated assets of an estimated 1 billion baht ($32 million).
