About the case

Six City Harvest Church leaders, including its former fund manager Chew Eng Han and church founder Kong Hee, are accused of misusing millions of church funds.

First, $24 million was allegedly used to fund the music career of Kong's wife, Ms Ho Yeow Sun.

Another $26.6 million was allegedly used to cover up the first amount.

They are said to have done this through music production firm Xtron and glass manufacturer Firna, run by long-time supporters of the church.

Kong, Chew, former board member John Lam, finance manager Sharon Tan, deputy senior pastor Tan Ye Peng and former finance manager Serina Wee face charges of criminal breach of trust and/or falsifying accounts.

Lam, Kong and Sharon Tan had testified earlier this year.

Chew is expected to take the stand when the trial resumes on Jan 26 next year.
