City Harvest Appeal

AGC to decide on next move

“The matter is not over yet,” he said yesterday, adding that the AGC will decide by early this week.

The High Court’s 2-1 decision on Friday to generally halve the sentences of six church leaders on appeal hinged on a legal point that could have serious implications for future corruption cases, Mr Shanmugam explained. All six, including church founder Kong Hee, had maintained they were not guilty of misusing $50 million in church funds.

Yesterday, Kong addressed his congregation at a 5pm service. “I’m so sorry for all the hurt, all the disappointment and all the painful ordeals you’ve been through,” he said.”
