Kong Hee: I failed to give full info to church members
City Harvest Church (CHC) founder Kong Hee admitted in court yesterday that he had presented inaccurate information to his church members.
Kong said he told his followers at an extraordinary general meeting in 2008 that music production firm Xtron was set up to own and manage future buildings for the church's use.
But Xtron was really to manage his wife singer Sun Ho separately and away from the church, he told the court yesterday.

Kong and five other CHC leaders are accused of misusing more than $50 million of church funds, some of which was allegedly used to finance the music career of Ho.
