Authorities have seized more than 1,000 sheets of processed wood from a branch of Wat Phra Dhammakaya in Lampang on the suspicion that they were acquired illegally.
A large amount of the wood, some identified as parts of protected golden teak and mai kraya loei, was found piled under a building which is being constructed to mark the 72nd birthday of Phra Thepyan Maha Muni, the clerical title of temple abbot Phra Dhammajayo, who is now wanted on money laundering-related charges.
The building, decorated with a picture of Phra Dhammajayo inside, is in the compound of Thoen Thoet Tham Youth Centre, a meditation practice venue located by the Lampang-Tak road in Thoen district.
