BANGKOK: -- 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.
