  4. from the length of time needed to prosecute them, newspaper reports it seems the 5 have already committed a crime and only waiting for how big a sentence they will be getting strange that an MP would want to defend a "criminal" what does it tell you 50.6m: Amount of funds misused The figure was more than twice the one given on Tuesday for the amount of funds allegedly misused by City Harvest Church leaders. Thu, Jun 28, 2012 my paper A SHOCKING revelation: The figure was more than twice the one given on Tuesday for the amount of funds allegedly misused by City Harvest Church leaders. At yesterday's court hearing, deputy public prosecutor Christopher Ong read out a laundry list of misappropriated funds that added up to a staggering $50.6 million. This dwarfs the $23 million reported after the five were arrested on Tuesday. Church founder Kong Hee, 47; his deputy, Tan Ye Peng, 39; church board member John Lam Leng Hung, 44; church investment manager Chew Eng Han, 52; and church financial manager Sharon Tan Shao Yuen, 36, looked on impassively as they stood in a row to hear their charges. The courtroom was packed with Kong's supporters. An area normally cordoned off was opened up to accommodate them. Even so, not all of the 200 who turned up could get in, as a queue snaked outside the room. The accused acknowledged their supporters by waving, but the mood got grimmer as the charges were read. All five were downcast as a dramatic silence enveloped those present. The five faced varying charges, which relate to the alleged misuse of $24 million from the church's building fund between 2007 and 2008, largely to fund the music career of Madam Ho Yeow Sun, Kong's wife. The money was mostly obtained from donations and allegedly used under the guise of investments. A year later, another $26.6 million was allegedly used to cover up the missing $24 million. Hrvest The charges are falsification of accounts and criminal breach of trust by an agent. The latter refers to abuse of power performed by a person holding a substantial amount of responsibility. It carries heavier penalties than the lesser charge, criminal breach of trust by a servant. The real drama, however, ensued after the hearing as the accused and their supporters exited the court. Kong emerged with wife Ho beside him, their hands clasped tightly together. Flanked in all directions by about 20 of his supporters who formed a human wall, the couple looked sullen and avoided all eye contact with the media and did not utter a word as they were escorted to a waiting car. Then things got ugly. In a scuffle, some people in the crowd started shoving photographers away and hurling insults at cameramen. According to Shin Min Daily News, many of the supporters appeared peeved and some were spotted crying outside the court. A videographer argued with a supporter who was waving his hand repeatedly in front of the camera to obstruct the filming of Kong walking out of court. Peace returned only when all five accused left. Later at 1pm, Kong posted on his Twitter account, alluding to a Biblical verse: "Why r you down in e dumps dear soul? Why r you crying e blues? Fix my eyes on God...He puts a smile on my face. He's my God." The five were represented by notable lawyers, including Kong's lawyer, Mr Edwin Tong, who is a partner at Allen & Gledhill and an MP for Moulmein- Kallang GRC; and Senior Counsel Lok Vi Ming, a partner at Rodyk and Davidson who is the lawyer for Chew. The five accused are out on $500,000 police bail and their passports have been impounded. They are due to return to court in four weeks' time, on July 25. For conspiracy to commit criminal breach of trust by agent, they may face life imprisonment if convicted.

    although i think you are trying to be humourous but i think you should be more sensitive about your comments firstly, a young lady has lost her life, we do NOT know the reason behind the cause BUT according to MO, she is a LOSER that i cannot accept and cannot agree it pains me to hear from a family man to not only say that but to defend it secondly, the few people were criminalised and not the church (CHC) the church teaches and do not sell it is the people that sells hence, you may offend people who are followers of the church
  8. From $127k HDB flat to $9.3m Sentosa Cove penthouse City Harvest Church founder Kong Hee and his wife first lived in a five-room HDB flat in Tampines when they married in 1992. Today, they live in a $9.3m Sentosa Cove penthouse. Wed, Jun 27, 2012 AsiaOne SINGAPORE - How did the Kongs get from a $127,000 HDB flat to a $9.3 million Sentosa Cove penthouse? Pastor Kong Hee and his family started with a five-room HDB flat in Tampines, which they bought for $127,000. They later sold it for $420,000, The New Paper reported in 2010. From there, the Kongs bought a Horizon Towers unit in River Valley. It had a private lift, two living rooms, four bedrooms and a compact kitchen. The flooring was marble, with a carpeted family area and a walk-in wardrobe which showed off the fashionista side of Ms Ho. It was done up in a mix of American classic and contemporary styles. In 2010, they sold this apartment and moved into The Suites at Central on Devonshire. It was reportedly sold to them for $2.6 million. There was also a $28,000-a-month Hollywood Hills estate which Ms Ho rented while pursuing her career as a singer in the United States. She stayed there with her son, an assistant, a nanny and some relatives while going about her music career. She shuttled between the US and Singapore. Today, the Kongs live in a luxury Sentosa Cove penthouse which cost $9.3 million, according to The New Paper. The 487 sq m apartment is more than four times bigger than their Tampines flat and has an ocean view.

  10. I wondered how many would be interested New dating service caters only to the wealthy By Sumita Sreedharan, TODAY | Posted: 28 June 2012 0634 hrs SINGAPORE: An exclusive dating service catering only to wealthy individuals looking for love was launched on Monday. Lunch Actually Platinum, a new service by dating agency Lunch Actually, specifically targets clients with an annual salary of over S$500,000, and who are either business owners or hold a position of seniority in a company. It aims to take on between 15 and 20 clients annually and each will be charged a fee of between S$5,000 and S$20,000 depending on the time frame of the membership, which can be between six and 18 months. Ms Violet Lim, CEO and co-founder of the dating agency, said she has received many requests from her existing clients for such high end services. And coupled with a recent study which showed that Singapore has the highest proportion of millionaires in the world, Ms Lim said "this is the perfect time to introduce such a service in Singapore". Asked if she felt such a service was controversial as it catered solely to the affluent, Ms Lim pointed to the fact that matches for the clients could come from anywhere - from the agency's database or from the scouts that will visit places where potential matches could hang out. This serves to broaden the services for singles, added Ms Lim. Investment banker Eric Chia, 34, however wondered if the service "could be open to abuse". "You never fully know if the other person is coming into this with an agenda," he said. He also questioned the robustness of the selection of potential matches. "The clients are after all paying a premium and having a hit or miss system would just not do," he said. Yet, Mr Will Tan, a deputy head at an organisation, said he is open to such a dating service that targets a niche market. "I think it is especially important for those who need privacy as it's a good platform for high profile people to have low profile engagements," said the 38-year-old. Miss Genecia Luo said she has had experiences where men just dated her because of her status as a former Miss Singapore. "I think it is really fitting a need so that people who are higher end or more affluent or of a certain status can date," she said. "There are people who want us as a trophy so I want to protect myself from that," said Miss Luo.
