Fugitive Nen Kham held in custody of US officials

 Fugitive ex-monk Nen Kham Chattiko who is wanted in Thailand for multiple criminal charges, including manslaughter and money laundering, has been held in custody of US officials.

Department of Special Investigation chief Pol Col Paisit Wongmuang disclosed that he was informed of the arrest by US officials of the former head of Khantitham monastery also known as Veeraphol Sukphol on Friday.

He said that the DSI and the Office of the Attorney-General would coordinate with US officials through the Thai Interpol to have Nen Kham extradited to Thailand to face criminal charges.

However, the DSI chief noted that, in the extradition process, charges would have to be lodged against Nen Kham first by the US court for his acknowledgement after which the ex-monk had the right to defend himself against the charges.

In other words, he said it would time some time before Nen Kham would be extradited.

According to the DSI, there are five cases still pending against the ex-monk. These include sexual assault against a minor; using fake doctoral certificate from World Peace University; reckless driving causing death to an individual; money laundering concerning donations; drug addiction and claiming to have super natural powers.

Well there's a surprise, Jet-setting former monk now ordered extradited to Thailand although he isn't on thai soil yet. However it has to await if the fugitive monk would exercise his right to appeal the extradition. Red bull style

Jet-setting former monk now ordered extradited to Thailand

The Office of the Attorney-General is ready to form a team of attorneys to fly to the United States to escort the infamous former monk  Luang Pu Nen Kham back to Thailand to face charges after the US court has ordered him to be extradited upon request by the Thai authorities.

Amnart Chotechai, director-general of the International Affairs Department at the Office of the Attorney-General, said today (July 15) that the department has been notified of the US court’s verdict in California to extradite the former monk, now Mr Wirapol Sukphol.

He said the department was ready to fly to escort him back.

However it has to await if the fugitive monk would exercise his right to appeal the extradition.

The jet-setting former monk is wanted by the Department of Special Investigation on charges of sexual assault against a minor, money laundering, and breaching of Computer Crimes Act.

Nen Kham, who is a former head of a forest monastery Si Sa Ket province, first caught attention of authorities in 2013 after footage emerged of him travelling aboard a private jet, carrying a Louis Vuitton bag and wearing brand-name sunglasses. But as allegations against him emerged, he fled to France and then the United States.

He was arrested last year by US authorities upon request by the DSI three years after fleeing Thailand.

DSI team arrives in US today to escort extradited jet-setting monk back for trial

A 3-member team of the Office of the Attorney-General (OAG) and the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) arrived in the United States Monday to escort a former notorious monk back for trial at home.

The team led by DSI director-general Pol Col Phaisit Wongmuang flew to the US after the Californian Court decided to hand over the former monk, Luang Pu Nen Kham, to Thai authorities to face charges of sexual assault of a minor, money laundering, and breaching of Computer Act.

Director-general of the OAG’s International Affairs Department Mr Amnart Chotechai said the team left yesterday and arrived today in the US.

The team is ready to escort the former monk, now Mr Wirapol Sukphol, 38, back.

But the attorney said it has yet to see if the former monk would appeal to higher court or not.

However in such case the Thai attorney team is ready to oppose the appeal, he said.

He said that in addition to the criminal offences the DSI has filed against him, the OAG also petitioned the Civil Court to seize  over 40-million baht assets which he and seven other accomplices owned from money laundering activities under the Anti-Money Laundering Act.

The petition is now under the hearing process in the court, he said.

He said if the suspect is extradited and back at home,  the DSI will first question him and ask whether he will acknowledge the charges or deny.

The case will then go to the OAG for prosecution in the Criminal Court, he said.

Nen Kham was former founder of Wat Pa Kantitham forestry monastery in Sisaket province.

He first caught attention of authorities in 2013 after a video footage emerged of him travelling aboard a private jet, carrying a Louis Vuitton bag and wearing brand-name sunglasses. He was also shown lying on a luxury Mercedes Benz car at a residence in California. He also wrote a book “Never born again in next life” which drew strong criticism that he claimed to have achieved enlightenment.

Civil Court orders 43 million baht of Nen Kham assets be turned over to the state

The Civil Court has ordered the seizure of assets from defrocked monk Nen Kham and 8 others totaling 43 million baht to the state, deeming the gains ill-gotten.

The Civil Court has ruled that the assets of Wiraphol Sukphol, the former monk widely known as Nen Kham, and 8 others, including a Porsche automobile worth 8 million baht and real estate in Ubon Ratchathani must be turned over to the state. A total 27 items were listed with a cumulative value of 43 million baht.

The court ruled that Wiraphol and the others, all monks, could not account for the origins of their wealth and likely used funds from defrauding the public for their purchases.

Wiraphol is currently being detained at Bangkok’s Central Prison after not requesting release on bond. He is pending trial for criminal offenses to which he has pleaded not guilty.
