The horse whisperer…
SINGAPORE: City Harvest Church founder Kong Hee had lied when he told the court he did not have total control over the Crossover project, former church investment manager Chew Eng Han alleged Monday morning (Feb 2).
The project sought to reach out to non-Christians through the music of Kong’s wife, Sun Ho.
Chew and Kong are among six church leaders accused of misusing S$24 million of church building funds to buy sham bonds in two companies – including Xtron Productions – to boost Sun Ho’s music career. Another S$26.6 million of church funds was allegedly circulated through complex transactions – which the prosecution refers to as “round-tripping” – to cover up the first amount.
“I am an atheist,” said John Ng, 47 a freelance artist.
“I think the ones who will actually go to heaven will be people like me,” he added.
