Defrocked monk Wirapol Sukphol has just three million baht in his 41 bank accounts, when there used to be about 300 million baht, Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) adviser Narong Rattananukul said on Tuesday.
A photo posted on the Facebook page of former pilot Piya Tregalnon shows former monk Wirapol Sukphol aboard a private jet, brandishing a bundle of US dollar banknotes. Wg Cdr Piya said Mr Wirpol wanted to buy a private jet and asked him to find one. He also said the monk’s bag was filled with US$100 banknotes.
Mr Narong said the ONCB and the Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo) had asked financial institutions and banks throughout the country to disclose details of all the bank accounts and financial transactions of Mr Wirapol, formerly known as Luang Pu Nen Kham.
