Kong Hee applies for permission to travel overseas

City Harvest Church founding pastor Kong Hee, who is facing three charges of criminal breach of trust, showed up at the Subordinate Court on Monday to apply for permission to travel overseas.

He is understood to be travelling soon around the region for pastoral engagements.

His lawyers from Allen & Gledhill declined to reveal how much more bail had to be paid, or his travel dates and itinerary.

Mr Kong, 47, is out on $500,000 bail. He and five other senior members of the church will have their case, which revolve around the misuse of over $50 million in church funds, on Aug 30.
