A megachurch pastor in Singapore has been sentenced to eight years in prison for misappropriating church donations to support his wife’s singing career.
ABC News reports that Kong Hee, founder and senior pastor of City Harvest Church in Singapore, was found guilty of using over $35 million in church donations to fund his wife, popstar HO Yeow Sun’s, career.
Prosecutors said that Kong, along with five other church leaders, placed 24 million Singapore dollars ($17 million) into sham bond investments so that the money could actually be used for Ho’s career.
Kong and the other church leaders also used another 26 million Singapore dollars ($18 million) to cover up the first embezzlement from auditors.
