City Harvest Church case adjourned to Oct 4

The case involving millions in City Harvest church funds allegedly being siphoned off to further Ho Yeow Sun's music career has been adjourned to Oct 4.

Defence lawyers for the six accused, which include the church's founding pastor and Ho's husband Kong Hee, met the prosecution in a pre-trial conference behind closed doors on Thursday afternoon.

All six senior church leaders, whose passports have been impounded, are likely to plead not guilty.

Of the six, only former investment manager Chew Eng Han showed up at the subordinate courts.

He is applying for permission to travel overseas for personal reasons.

The six have been charged with varying counts of criminal breach of trust and falsifying accounts.
