Singapore church embezzlement case faces potential obstruction, say lawyers

| July 1, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR: Lawyers involved in the Singapore City Harvest Church misuse of funds and corruption case have said the statement made by the Church’s executive pastor could be seen as risky, and could be “construed as interfering with judicial process,” they said on Saturday.

Singapore’s City Harvest Church Executive Pastor Aries Zulkarnain said on Thursday evening that he and his Church stand by members accused of embezzling and misusing funds.

He said the Church will maintain support for the accused throughout the court proceedings.

Another pastor from the Church, Bobby Chaw, added that City Harvest has “actively worked to ensure good governance and have complied with codes set by the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports.”

Five members of City Harvest Church were charged by a court on Wednesday of corruption, misuse of funds and embezzlement, Channel NewsAsia reported.
