National police chief Pol Gen Chakthip Chaijinda has left for France in what is reported to be a new effort to seek help from the  Interpol to secure the extradition of former assistant abbot of Wat Sampanthawong in Bangkok, Phra Prommethi, from Germany.

 

It was the commissioner’s second trip in less than than two weeks in a bid  to take custody of Phra Prommethi, also known as Phra Jamnong Iem-Indra.

 

The national police chief flew out of the country on the night of June 10 on Thai Airways flight TG 930 from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France.
