BANGKOK (The Nation/Asia News Network): A 74-year-old monk was arrested on Tuesday morning in Kanchanaburi’s Muang district and charged with raping a four-year-old girl on several occasions in 2016.

Phra Ther Kongkwamdee was arrested in front of Paholpolpayuhasena Hospital at 11am after a warrant was issued nearly two years ago – in May 2017 – by Thong Pha Phum Provincial Court on charges of raping a girl under 13 and taking away a minor under 15 from her parents for a lewd act.
