The director of the National Office of Buddhism (NOB) will today ask the Sangha Supreme Council (SSC) to consider whether former Wat Phra Dhammakaya abbot, Phra Dhammajayo, breached the monastic disciplinary code of conduct and should be defrocked.
However, the NOB director admitted that it is not easy to defrock the controversial monk as the defrocking process is time-consuming.
Pol Lt Col Pongporn Pramsaneh, the NOB's newly appointed chief, told the Bangkok Post he will present investigation reports on a money-laundering case against the former abbot at the SSC meeting today.
