CHC: A prophecy

In Corporate governance, Humour on 13/07/2012 at 7:51 am

First some recapping:

— CHC mgt says:

“The people currently in the news are our pastors and trusted staff and leaders who have always put God and CHC first,” he said. “As a church we stand with them and I believe fully in their integrity.”

“The S$24 million, which went into investment bonds, was returned to the church in full, with interest… The church did not lose any funds in the relevant transactions, and no personal profit was gained by the individuals concerned.”

— And Geriatric Geisha’s hubbie says : “Kong Hee insisted on his integrity” and “Please know that there are always two sides to a story. I look forward to the day I caun tell you my side of the story in court.”

Going by the above comments by management and Kong,  and the failure of CHC  to appeal against the findings of the Commissioner of Charities, I prophesy that when the court finds him and the other four guilty as charged (Yup I think the court will find them guilty as charged), CHC management, Kong and the other four will simply say,”It was an honest mistake. We know what we did was in accordance with the wishes of the God of prosperity, and we thought it was legal under S’pore’s law. It seems we were badly advised on the latter.”

Based on the words of mgt and Kong, and the failure to appeal against CoC’s findings, the basis of the charges against the Famous Five, it would seem that the factual findings of the CoC is not in dispute.

While there are good legal, and financial (lawyers are expensive and Auntie Sun needs money for her Hollywood lifestyle) reasons not to appeal the CoC’s findings of fact, but to use the coming trials to contest them, the very public assertions of the accused “integrity”, no monies lost, and the deafening silence on the findings of fact by CoC leads me to conclude that

— at the trials, the “pureness” of the motives (saving souls via Auntie Sun’s Hollywood lifestyle and work) will be stressed in the hope that this will lead to their acquittals, and

— if it doesn’t, then they will spin “It was an honest mistake. In our desire to save souls, we unwittingly broke the laws of Caesar for which the five of us will go to jail. Pass the plate round, we need to pay the lawyers and the rent of Auntie Sun’s Hollywood mansion.”

Err someone should ask CHC mgt abt their God’s mansions and how come Auntie Sun and Kong (remember his prnthouse in Sentosa Cove): “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”

  1. We should not under-estimate the extra vigour and vitality of AGC,the most recent example is Woffles Wu Case,so let’s wait and see with open eyes.

  2. The key question is whether any money was stolen.

    A fat paycheck and a lavish lifestyle is not illegal. After all, the ministers are paid millions – only in Singapore!

  3.

  4. “It’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission.”
    Grace Hopper (1906-1992)

  5. Supposing, just say only, they manage to borrow money from an extremely rich indonesian and put the money back and say – “Neh, the money still there what!” Then the AG still got case?

  6. Eh, case *subjudice* hor. Dun anyhow discuss, sekali get letter from AGC hor.

  7. In my Father’s house are many prisons: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you
