The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) will meet on Wednesday to discuss the third batch of temple-related corruption cases.

NACC secretary-general Warawit Sukboon revealed on Tuesday that fellow anti-graft commissioner Surasak Keereevichien, who chairs a subcommittee investigating the third batch, had presented the matter as an urgent priority. 

Warawit declined to comment on whether the NACC would also be discussing the corruption cases involving high-ranking monks such as Sa Ket Temple’s Phra Phromsitti (Thongchai Sukhayano) and Samphanthawongsaram Temple’s abott Phra Phrommedhi (Chamnong Dhammajari). 

The two senior monks were dismissed from the Sangha Supreme Council last Thursday over allegations that they embezzled state funds for temples and Dhamma promotion.
