Shaolin Temple’s ‘CEO Monk’ Survives Salacious Accusations
After a 15-month-long investigation into a $25,000 robe weaved with gold thread — and a DNA test to determine whether he had fathered a child — the abbot of the Shaolin Monastery has been cleared by China’s graft busters.
In the summer of 2015, a former disciple accused Shi Yongxin of extorting money from his students, transferring shares of the temple’s company to a mistress, and fathering a child with a nun, among other salacious claims. On Feb. 4, investigators in the central province of Henan, where the monastery is located, officially exonerated him of all charges.
