City Harvest Church founder Kong Hee and his five deputies will return to court today, as the highly watched criminal trial against them resumes.

The six accused from the mega church – which celebrates its 25th anniversary next weekend – are expected to finally testify under oath.

They are likely to take the witness stand in the following order: former board member John Lam Leng Hung, 46; Kong, 49; finance manager Sharon Tan Shao Yuen, 38; former treasurer Chew Eng Han, 54; deputy senior pastor Tan Ye Peng, 41; and former finance manager Serina Wee Gek Yin, 37.

The Straits Times understands that Lam will call one witness – a church board member – while Chew has a list of 10 witnesses, including church staff and Kong’s secular pop music singer wife, Ms Ho Yeow Sun.
