City Harvest church founder Kong Hee and four others from his ministry were arrested by the police on Tuesday morning, two years after investigations first began into the homegrown church.
Mr Kong, deputy pastor Tan Ye Peng and three other church leaders were picked up by the police at their homes early on Tuesday morning and taken in for questioning over the alleged misuse of church funds as well as alleged breaches under charity laws.
They allegedly misused $24 mil of church funds for Sun Ho’s music career under the pretext of investments in bonds. Ho, who is Kong Hee’s wife, is a singer based in the US.
All five are expected to be produced in court on Wednesday.
This latest development comes two years after the Commercial Affairs Department started a probe into the alleged misuse of church funds in May 2010.
Seriously… how long do you all need to realise that there’s obvious fraud? What kind of church gives out CDs and forces people to buy CDs? I’m not Christian and I have nothing against God, but I have plenty of issues against His children.
