Woman tells DSI she was ex-monk’s wife

BANGKOK, July 15 – A woman from Si Sa Ket province claiming to be an ex-wife of defrocked Buddhist monk Wirapol Sukpol filed a complaint with the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) yesterday.
Salakchit Umpipat said the ex-monk, formerly known as Luang Pu Nen Kham, fathered her 11-year-old son and that he should be entitled to his assets. She said Mr Wirapol had sex with her when she was around 13 years old.
She appeared at the DSI with her son, grandmother Poey Sihawong and two provincial officials from Si Sa Ket.
DSI director general Tarit Pengdith said the offices of Buddhism in Ubon Ratchathani and Si Sa Ket provinces have ordered Luang Pu Nen Kham to be disrobed, paving the way for legal action against him, while the DSI has contacted American authorities to cancel his visa.
He is currently on a visit to the United States.
Mr Tarit said the DSI will assign a lawyer to file suit at the Juvenile Court in Si Sa Ket on behalf of the 11-year-old boy on Thursday to seek a court order for Mr Wirapol to legally accept the boy as his son.
The purpose is to entitle the boy to his share of Mr Wirapol’s lawful assets, the DSI chief said.
He said the DSI has contacted the Office of Narcotics Control Board to trace Mr Wirapol’s money trail to determine if he has been involved in drug trafficking.
Mr Wirapol’s wealth includes more than 70 luxury cars in his possession.
Mr Tarit said a meeting of related officials will be held today to follow up on the case, stressing that the authorities have sufficient evidence to take legal action against the embattled ex-monk. (MCOT online news)
