DPP: Serina Wee's firm created to hide CHC-Xtron link
Prosecution says Serina Wee's accounting firm meant to hide CHC channelling funds to Xtron
Serina Wee had wanted to set up her own accounting firm.
So City Harvest Church (CHC) founder Kong Hee claimed he let her go even though her accounting services were important to the church and music production firm Xtron.
But, asserted the prosecution yesterday, Wee's firm, Advante Consulting, was meant to create a "perception of separation" between CHC and Xtron.
And it was to hide the fact that the megachurch was channelling its building fund to Xtron for its Crossover Project, said the prosecution.
Kong, Wee and four other CHC leaders are accused of misusing more than $50 million of church funds.
The trial continues on Monday.
