Police Execute Search Warrant Even As Activist Monk Denies Alleged Intimate Relationship

Siem Reap police said Wednesday they had searched and confiscated materials from the home of prominent activist monk and human rights defender Venerable Luon Savath, who has since denied being part of an alleged love scandal.

Last week, the Monk Council in Siem Reap announced in a statement that Luon Sovath had been expelled from the clergy for allegedly having intimate relationships with multiple women. This was based on an investigation carried out by the council, the statement read, into Facebook videos purportedly showing him having intimate conversations with at least four women.

However, on Wednesday, Luon Sovath published a social media post calling the Facebook videos fake, manipulated, and denied having any intimate relations with anyone.
