City Harvest Warned by Commissioner of Charity
The court case of City Harvest Church (CHC) is still on going. The legal fees for those charged by the courts should be substantial therefore the employees and members of the church has started a donation drive earlier to help pay the legal fees of those charged. However, the Commissioner of Charity (COC) has disallowed them to solicit donations for the purpose of paying the legal fees of those charged. The COC has also disallowed CHC from paying the legal fees of those charged. Disallowing the church to use its funds for the legal fees of those charged is understandable, but not allowing the employees or members to raise funds for this purpose is not clear.
