DSI will directly ask US authorities to cancel the visa for the notorious Luang Pu Nenkham, who officially lost his status as a monk on Saturday. DSI is coordinating with various authorities in a bid to bring the former monk to justice.

The Office of National Buddhism has asked the center controlling the overseas travel of monks and novice monks to consider cancelling Luang Pu Nenkham's passport. However, the chairman of the center's board explained that his center would only be able to offer an opinion on the case, as the mandate to revoke a passport lay with the Foreign Affairs Ministry.

Ubon Ratchathani Rajabhat University council would consider revoking the honorary doctorate it had earlier approved for Luang Pu Nenkham.
