Are CHC members privately raising funds to help Kong Hee fight his case?
Posted by temasektimes on August 5, 2012
According to a report by Yahoo News, several members of City Harvest Church (CHC) are privately raising funds to help pay for the legal fees of its disgraced pastor Kong Hee as well as five other leaders who were charged for misusing up to $50 million dollars of the church’s funds to further the music career of his wife Ho Yeow Sun.
The unofficial fundraising campaign was reportedly started by an executive member named Dawn Lee who mobilized individuals who wanted to offer Kong and others financial support during CHC’s AGM last Sunday.
She then suggested that interested members meet her after the meeting before distributing her contact details.
Executive pastor Aries Zulkarnain had earlier rejected four proposals from other members suggesting the use of church funds to bankroll the six charged leaders’ legal fees.
Despite his spectacular fall from grace, CHC members have mostly rallied behind Kong Hee with a group of youth leaders producing a music video lately to express their support for him.
