IL - SNAP applauds Buddhist predators extradition back to Chicago
We are grateful to the brave survivors who spoke out about Camnong Boa Ubol and the abuse they suffered at his hands. Without their courage, he would likely still be victimizing young girls without regret or repercussion. Now that he has been extradited back to Chicago where these crimes occurred, we hope that he will be held without bail.
Now, more than ever, we urge anyone who may have seen, suspected, or suffered crimes at the hands of this monk to come forward and make a report to police. Any detail, no matter how seemingly small or insignificant, could be the difference between keeping this dangerous predator away from kids or letting him back out onto the street.
50 State AG Call for Grand Jury
Any investigation must be:
- independent of and separate from the church
- must have subpoena powers and ability to compel testimony under oath
Anything short of these criteria is a sham and whitewash.
In addition, write letters to the editor, make phone calls to politicians as they can apply pressure to keep them responsive to our demand. We need to make efforts to ensure that they follow up on what the state is doing to investigate these crimes.
