Defiant Kong Hee declares: I am confident I will be VINDICATED
Posted by temasektimes on July 26, 2012
Kong Hee was charged with four other CHC members in June this month for allegedly misusing up to S$50 million dollars of the church’s building fund to further the music career of his singer wife Ho Yeow Sun.
In a press statement issued on Wednesday, Kong Hee declared in a defiant tone:
“I do maintain my integrity, and will rigorously defend that integrity against these charges.”
Though he had earlier called on Lord Jesus to be his ‘shepherd’ on his Facebook, Kong Hee now said he will place his faith and trust in Singapore’s judicial system:
“I will explain the facts and circumstances to the Court, and am confident that I will be vindicated,” he added.
35-year-old Serina Wee, formerly the church’s chief finance director, was charged on the same day with six counts of criminal breach of trust and four for falsification of accounts.
Pre-trial conferences for all six cases will be held on 30 August.
