Thailand: Former Buddhist monk sentenced to 114 years in jail – Al Marsad

BANGKOK – A Thai court sentenced a former Buddhist monk to 114 years in prison on charges of “fraud and money-laundering”.

The Thai newspaper Bangkok Post reported on Thursday that a court in the capital Bangkok had sentenced 114-year-old monk Wirabol Sukful to 114 years in prison after being convicted on charges of “fraud and money laundering.”

The 38-year-old monk also received donations by deceiving people for false reasons, the officials said.

Sucful fled Thailand to the United States in 2013 after an arrest warrant against him and was extradited to Thailand in July 2017.

Although he was sentenced to 114 years in prison, Thai law allows only a maximum of 20 years’ imprisonment.
