Monk drops charges against Thai police in sensational drugging and blackmail case

It is a case straight out of a cautionary fable, said Thai Rath, and certainly falls into the "only in Thailand" bracket.

 

We might call it the monk, the woman, the police and the short time sex room.

 

A Khon Kaen monk - in line to be the next abbot at his temple - said that he was drugged by drinking orange juice then taken to a short time hotel.

 

There he claimed he had his picture taken in a delicate situation with a young woman.

 

The purpose was blackmail to stop him rising to the top of the temple.

 

Yesterday Phra Khru Sutweerasunthorn, 47, of Wat Bamrung Wiriya travelled to Mahasarkham with two policemen - Watcharaphong Singsorn and Worasit Khotape - to meet police there to formally drop charges he had previously made.

 

The woman in the blackmail scheme - Patrawee Namsomjai - didn't show up. A summons has been issued and an arrest warrant will be filed if she fails to go to Borabeu police.

 

The monk told reporters that he was in line to be the next abbot but some people were opposed to this. On a trip to Mahasarakham he said Patrawee gave him drugged orange juice.

 

He promptly fell asleep.

 

The next thing he knew was that he had woken up and was being photographed by the two cops with the woman in a short time hotel. They threatened him with defrocking.

 

But thankfully, CCTV came to the monk's rescue and proved that he had been abducted and did not go of his own accord.

 

The Thai Rath report did not mention any sanctions from police against their men in the case and questions about their involvement were not posed.

They're bound to make this into a movie . . . could be:

'Monkey Business of the Resortful Kind' or

'The Last Resort' or . . . and the last one's always the best,

'Abbot a Boy'

It's a sad and extremely paradoxical day in Thailand when one of them is telling the truth, but you still don't believe either of them. 

It is hard to find the truth here. When you ask a yes or no question you get a 15 minute answer.

Of her own choosing, my Thai wife seldom donates to monks and/or temples anymore.

Just shows how much money and power there is in temples,when

they resort to this kind of thing, so have they now arrested those

that  tried to blackmail the monk,the police were obviously involved,

but who paid them ?

The true colors of the country. Which one would you trust:

Brown

Orange

Khaki

Olive

Red

Yellow

or maybe a vivid mouse grey?

There must be a competition between monks and lady boys who makes the headlines these days.
