Dirty Monk Caught Filming Naked Women

A DIRTY Buddhist monk has been charged with secretly filming hundreds of naked women who stripped off to wash in holy water at a temple.

Net Khai, 37, now faces a year in jail and has been stripped of his religious status after cops arrested him for spying on women who had gone to him to be blessed.

Prosecutors in Cambodia say that after filming the naked ladies, Khai shared his saucy clips with others.

He was arrested at his pagoda in the country's capital, Phnom Penh, on Saturday and charged with producing and distributing pornographic images by the local court.

Police chief, Touch Naruth, said that the monk had secretly taped the women pouring sacred water over themselves in a pagoda bathroom.

Khai was arrested after a victim approached cops and said that video clips showing the naked women had been shared via mobile phones.

The police officer said: "He has filmed hundreds of women since 2008. They came to the monk to be blessed with holy water, but they were secretly filmed.

"His act affects other monks and Buddhism and seriously harms our tradition."

Naruth said that Khai confessed to his crimes and they were now looking for his accomplices.
