Monk arrested for child abuse

A monk has been arrested and defrocked for alleged sexual violations against boys and posting pornographic content online.

 

“He has confessed that he has committed the crimes for more than 10 years already. Whenever his behaviour was exposed at a temple, he would simply move to another,” said Pol Lt General Surachate Hakparn, deputy chief of Thailand’s Action Taskforce for Information Technology Crime Suppression. 

 

Surachate identified the suspect, now defrocked, as 40-year-old Sikarin Klaisuwan. 

 

“He opted for temples that had often organised mass ordinations for novice monks because there were plenty of boys for him to approach,” Surachate said. 

 

He said Sikarin was being charged for abusing under-15s. The charges carry a jail term of between four and 20 years and a fine of between Bt80,000 and Bt400,000. 

 

Surachate said police found Sikarin had kept many clips of sexual assaults against boys at his quarters in Kanchanaburi province. 

 

In another case, police found a 30-year-old monk in Khon Kaen province was releasing pornographic content on Line and Facebook. 

 

After defrocking, the suspect was identified as Danainat Saengphan. 

 

“He apparently lured girls to talk to him and send their nude photos to him without them knowing that he was a monk,” Surachate said. 

 

He added that his agency also arrested an 82-year-old German for possessing child pornography. 

 

“He is liable to a jail term of up to five years and a fine of Bt100,000, if convicted,” Surachate said.

I would change “he would simply move to another” to “he was simply ‘allowed’ to move to another”.

 

Shocking standards.

It really sickens me that people the world over seem to be drawn towards religious activity, with the associated trust that is implicit, in a follower of supposed higher morals, to gain access to a child with which to fulfil their perverted sexual desires. The fact he has been doing it for countless years, is as horrific as is the likelihood of exactly the same thing going on in multiple locations across the country and region. Foreigners seem to have got the message, as there are very infrequent arrests reported these days of such, while the locals don't seem to have, and the powers that be, who should be observant for this sort of thing, have clearly been asleep on the job. And to get away with it in multiple locations for over ten years, says a lot about who the cops have been spying on, and why scum such as this have been getting away with it.

Even the NGO's might want to reassess where the enemy lies.

That's pretty much the way it works here for all the locals who get in trouble:

--abusing monks

--corrupt cops

--molesting teachers, etc etc etc.

 

Out of one job, put on ice for a while, and then off to start over again in some new position.  :ninja:

 

The cycle is rarely broken, only temporarily interrupted.

I live in a small village near Kabinburi. The monks are wonderful. My brother in law is a senior monk in one of the wat near Sakaeo.

He is a good man with a great sense of humour. I told him he was welcome to move in with us as he got older.

Other monks listening in protested. Don't take him away, he is loved here by the people. Not all monks are bad.

In Australia, there is still ongoing issues with previous centuries of child exploitation in institutions and especially the Catholic and Church of England religions.

Many disgraced clergymen, having been released from a gaol term for child rape have been found to be receiving huge financial support from the churches above and beyond

any pension they were entitled too. The religious institutions seem not to comprehend that the filth that represented their faith and raped and abused children have done anything wrong.

They take solace in the New Testament quote. Suffer the children to come unto me.

In some instances I wish we still had the death penalty because these vermin have destroyed so many lives.

That's quite an ignorant statement, it would be more correct to say that religion has been used by evil people as an excuse to do evil things.

Or, as in this case, it has been used as a mask by that disgraceful excuse of a human being.

Apparently you think that without religion, the world will be a better place, but unfortunately you are wrong.

Good and bad existed before religion, and they will be here after religion is gone.

Not necessarily, when the Catholic Church could no longer ignore the conduct of a priest THEY moved him. It says here that this monk moved on himself or possibly was allowed to.
