Loei abbot: Four mothers filed a complaint on Friday with police in Loei, accusing the abbot of a monastic centre of sexually abusing their sons.
They told Khok Ngam police that the abbot in Tambon Phone Sung, Dan Sai district, had molested their sons while they were novices there.
One woman whose name police are withholding said her 17-year-old son was ordained on September 17 and abused the following night. When it happened again on September 23, he called his mum to take him home.
He told his mother the abbot had asked him to sleep in his living quarters and then performed oral sex on him.
