PATTAYA – February 18, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 8 p.m. a report of a monk doing an obscenity to a female was received by Pol. Lt. Navaphol Benmart, investigation police on duty, Huay Yai police station, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province.

Making the complaint at the police station was the female victim, Ms. Thipphawan Krailo, age 22, occupation caddy of Fenix golf field. The victim was with her mother, Mrs. Wai Sripholarn, age 55, from Tambon Pong, Amphur Banglamung.

Ms. Thipphawan told police she was being ordained as a temporary nun at the temple, in order to redeem a vow. But she complained she was deceived and was a victim of an obscenity committed by monk Maha Thongchai Hoto, age 37, a monk at Sattahip temple.

The accused monk Maha Thongchai had came to assist the work of the Abbot of Khao Boonmeedararam temple (Wat Thoongkha), Tambon Huay Yai.

After receiving the victim’s complaint, the police team went to investigate the monk. When they arrived at the temple, the police discovered that Maha Thongchai had gone to Amphur Klang in Rayong province. But he returned with a lawyer, and went to be investigated by the officers.

Ms. Thippawan had told police that the incident had begun when she was washing the dishes in front of the parsonage, and monk Maha Thongchai walked to call her to see him. So she told her mother that the monk called her, and he may want her to assist his work. So she went to see monk Maha Thongchai at the parsonage.

The monk told her to go to the first parsonage, and taught her about Dharmma. He told her that he will do Metta rite for her (the rite to make other people to fond of her). So she came back to her living quarters to take a bath. Then she returned to the parsonage of monk Maha Thongchai, and he let her come inside his parsonage.

She asked him whether he will violate the code of monastic discipline if he does a tattoo on her and has to touch her body. The monk Maha Thongchai replied that he will not violate the code if she does the Forgiveness Rite first. Then the monk let her do the Forgiveness Rite and the swearing of an oath, in order to forbid her to tell anyone about doing the Metta rite.

At first, Ms. Thippawan thought monk Maha Thongchai would do the Metta rite at front of the parsonage. But then he let her go inside the parsonage, because he didn’t want anyone to see the rite. So she went inside the parsonage, and monk Maha Thongchai locked the door. She then saw a knife in the parsonage and got scared, but she tried to be calm.

Monk Maha Thongchai let her sit on the floor in order to begin the rite. He let her bring the cloth, to close his eyes and her eyes for sincerity. Then he told her to take off her blouse, and used the beeswax to apply on her back. He then told her to take off her bra, and applied the beeswax on her breasts.

Then monk Maha Thongchai brought his body to touch at her body, and she felt like his sexual organ became erect. Then he prayed for the incantation and let her lie down. He then told her to take off her belt. But she told him that if she had to take off her belt, she will stop doing the rite.

Ms. Thippawan then decided to leave the monk’s parsonage, because she felt that an obscenity had been done to her by monk Maha Thongchai. So she informed the nun at the temple about the encounter, and also informed the Abbot of the temple.

Ms. Thippawan is afraid that she will not get justice from this immoral act, because she is only a small woman and doesn’t want to ask for any money. She just wants this monk to be prosecuted according to the law, in order to prevent him from making trouble with other women. So she came to notify the police.

Initially, the police charged monk Maha Thongchai Hoto with an accusation of doing an obscenity to another person. During questioning by police, the monk Maha Thongchai Hoto denied all the accusations, and let his lawyer bail him out with 50,000 THB cash. The code of monastic discipline also requires the senior monk to investigate the matter.
