Kong Hee allowed to travel overseas on $1 million dollar bail

Posted by temasektimes on July 31, 2012

Disgraced founder of City Harvest Church Kong Hee has been given permission by the courts to travel overseas with his bail now set at S$1 million, twice the original figure of S$500,000.

PAP MP Edwin Tong who is representing Kong Hee confirmed on Monday that his client was in court to ask for permission to leave the country and that the court has granted the application.

Kong Hee was charged earlier with five other members of the church for misusing up to S$50 million dollars of the church’s funds to further the music career of his singer wife Ho Yeow Sun.

Despite the gravity of his alleged criminal offences, Kong Hee continues to maintain his ‘integrity’ and CHC members have largely rallied around him.

In a post on his Facebook yesterday, Kong Hee reaffirmed his faith in God:

“上帝設立了,祂必托住。信靠祂 …”

    No proper practice of risk assessment & mitigation here as the bail amount was only set at SGD 1 Million whereas the sum of monies misused was SGD 50.6 Million Dollars (easily 50 times more than the bail amount) & what if he absconded while out on bail??? Any remedies???

    Only one million, still there is a balance of 49 why worry. Only problem is how is Singapore going to recover the 49 if he abscond.

    wow…. when you have member of the PAP represent ur case…. the treatment really different….

    Now… who say money cannot buy you anything….

    oh wow, but what is $1 million for him when he has tens of millions of dollars. I don’t need to question where the money is coming from because we all know the answer to that.

    I have one question though, Will the country where he is “preaching” at extradite him if he so chooses not to come back to face the music?

    If the use of this $1 million isn’t considered misusing church’s funds, then seriously I don’t know what is.
