bad monk2The wolf in sheep’s clothing has announced his surrender, but is delaying his time.

Wirapol Sukphol, (formerly known as Luang Pu Nen Kham Chattiko), is the corrupt, jet-flying, Luis Vuitton wearing monk who has fled from Thai authorities under multiple charges including violating the Computer Crimes Act, fraud, sex with a minor and rape.

Initially, on August 1, Sukij Poonsrikasem, Wirapol’s lawyer, contacted the Thai Department of Special Investigation (DSI) and offered a surrender deal to DSI director-general Tarit Pengdith. But there was a catch to this deal; three conditions were made by the now defrocked monk who said he would give himself up on August 8. He asked to be directly surrendered to Tarit and nobody else, to be ensured justice in defending charges against him and to be released on bail.

Wirapol who was hiding out in the US, where he owns a retreat 75 miles south of Los Angeles, is now in Laos. His next destination was supposed to be Thailand where he would have returned by plane to Suvarnabhumi airport – or by land through a border checkpoint in Nong Khai province. There, Wirapol would have been met by one of his close pupils, a presumed government official who would guide him to DSI investigators and straight to Tarit.

But it doesn’t appear this way anymore, as Sukji is backing out on his claims of being Wirapol’s lawyer, announcing on August 6 that Wirapol would not be returning to Thailand as previously announced. Why? Because Wirapol’s not feeling well, and doesn’t have enough money for bail, despite owning 83 cars, multiple plots of land, and walking off with 300 million baht ($9,532,290) from his bank accounts during the time he had fled.

The bail was set at 2 million baht ($63,400).
