Support for fired monk

The Khmer Kampuchea Krom Buddhist Monk Association appealed to four different government ministries last week, asking for their intervention in reinstating a Khmer Krom monk who had allegedly been fired without just cause in Kandal province’s Mok Kampoul district earlier this month.

Khan Sophanarith, president of the Khmer Kampuchea Krom Buddhist Monk Association, sent the request last Thursday to the Ministers of Interior, Defence and Cults and Religions and the supreme patriarch of monks, Tep Vong.

The letter claims Monyvorn pagoda chief Chea Sovannaphum was forcibly removed from the pagoda.

“Chea Sovannaphum did not make any mistakes and there were many villagers that supported what he did at his pagoda,” Khan Sophanarith said.
