A monk at the Pathum Thani-based Dhammakaya Temple said yesterday that Friday marked the 16th successive day of human rights violations against the sect, after the temple was cordoned off by junta order, backed by the all-powerful Article 44, in the authority's search for former abbot Phra Dhammachayo.

The comment was made by Dhammakaya monk Phra Maha Tossaporn Poonnayangkalo, speaking to press at the temple's gate.

The monk was speaking in the absence of the temple's communication chief, Phra Sanitwong Chareonrattawong, who is under threat of arrest from the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) after failing to respond to a summons. 

The DSI has said that its officers are gathering evidence to file charges of incitement against people for allegedly spreading misinformation or distorted news on social media, including Phra Sanitwong.
