Singapore’s City Harvest Church: More Church Ministers Charged in Breach of Trust Scandal
The Christian Post reports:
Kong Hee, pastor and founder of Singapore’s City Harvest Church, attended court Wednesday for his second hearing in a trial in which he is being accused of misusing $18 million of church funds. Kong has also issued a statement, vowing to rigorously defend his integrity.
“I do maintain my integrity, and will rigorously defend that integrity against these charges,” Kong, 47, said Wednesday, according to Singaporean newswire Today Online.
The pastor has been accused of “dishonestly misappropriating monies” from the church’s building fund to promote and support the pop music career of Sun, who is in her early 40s. His charges also include three counts of “criminal breach of trust.” Kong could face life in prison if found guilty on all three charges.
