AMLO asked to probe monk's assets

The Facebook network against acts that destroy kingdom, religion and monarchy, on Tuesday urged the Anti-Money Laundering Office (AMLO) to probe the assets of Si Sa Ket monastery monk Luang Pu Nenkham.

The monk has recently been at the centre of a lot of negative publicity after a video clip of him on board a private jet, sporting brandname sunglasses and a Louis Vuitton bag went viral.

The monk however remained abroad hence didn't explain himself yet.

Submitting the request to AMLO deputy chief Suwanee Sawaengpol, the network chairman Songkran Atchariyasap urged the agency to probe and announce the result to the public. If the monk was guilty, the agency should freeze all transactions immediately because there might be some beneficiary parties that are influential persons. He said group would also file a similar request for probe to the Crime Suppression Police on Thursday.
