The founder of City Harvest Church Kong Hee (pic left) has been arrested by the police for alleged criminal breach of trust and falsification of accounts of the church.

The other four members are John Tan Yee Peng, Lam Leng Ham, Chew Eng Ham and Sharon Tan.

The five were questioned by the Commercial Affairs Department (CAD) on Tuesday.

They are out on bail and will be charged in court on Wednesday.

The arrest came two years after the Commercial Affairs Department started a probe into the alleged misuse of church funds in May 2010.

The Commissioner of Charities found financial irregularities of $23 million from City Harvest Church’s funds and concerted effort was made to conceal movement of funds.

Kong Hee’s wife singer Ho Yeow San was also called in for questioning. There are no statements on the arrests by City Harvest Church.
