World’s Most Infamous Monk Will Return to Thailand
By: Talk Bangkok
Wirapol Sukphol, the now infamous, jet-setting monk who has been defrocked will return to Thailand on July 31st, reports the Bangkok Post.

The monk is currently in the United States, avoiding Thai authorities on charges of fraud, sexually assaulting a minor and violating the Computer Crimes Act. He has reportedly met with prominent lawyers including a famous Hollywood lawyer who will represent Mr. Wirapol in his passport revocation and extradition cases.

The monk's indulgent lifestyle was exposed via a video recorded on a private jet when he was on his way to France. After the charges were released by authorities, Mr. Wirapol decided to cancel his return to Thailand and instead traveled to the US.
