Condom-carrying monk

A 24-year-old Buddhist monk was detained in Siem Reap for carrying condoms and sex magazines in his bag last Friday, said Heng Sum, deputy chief of the Siem Reap Police yesterday, adding that the monk was later defrocked for his behaviour. “The monk was sent to the chief of Por Langka Pagoda in Siem Reap where he was given a lecture and punished. Later the same day he was dismissed from the pagoda,” Sum said.
