KK monk still missing

Khmer Krom monk Tim Sakhorn is still missing, with rights groups claiming he has

been kidnapped. Sakhorn was defrocked and allegedly deported to Vietnam on June 30

by still unknown armed "bodyguards." Great Supreme Patriarch Tep Vong said

Sakhorn was defrocked because he had undermined Cambodian-Vietnamese relations. Government

officials claimed Sakhorn had voluntarily requested to go to Vietnam. Tep Vong told

local media on Sunday that he had ordered the defrocking and deportation of 11 more

Khmer Krom Monks for attacking a group of his monks and accusing him of being a puppet

monk for the government.
