In this photo taken Monday, July 15, 2013, a photo of fugitive ex-monk Wirapol Sukphol, left, is shown by Songkran Artchariyasarp, a lawyer and Buddhist activist in Bangkok, Thailand. Now Wirapol is at the center of the biggest religious scandal the predominantly Buddhist country has seen in years. Critics say the case is an extreme example of a wider crisis in Thai Buddhism. The arrest warrant implicates Wirapol on three charges including statutory rape, embezzlement and online fraud to seek donations. He is also under investigation for money laundering, drug trafficking and manslaughter for a hit-and-run accident. Authorities are struggling to figure out how he amassed so much money.
