The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) will seek an arrest warrant for defrocked monk Wirapol Sukphol tomorrow.
Speaking after the agency's meeting yesterday, DSI chief Tarit Pengdith said the warrant is for two charges _ fraud in advertising for donations for the construction of an Emerald Buddha replica, and a sex offence with a minor.
