Auditor grilled in trial of City Harvest Church leaders

SINGAPORE: The trial of the six leaders of City Harvest Church continued on Tuesday with fiery exchanges between the defence and prosecution during the cross-examination of the church's auditor.

The defence grilled Ms Tiang Yii on how she tried to distance herself from fellow auditor Mr Foong Daw Ching, who is also a prosecution witness.

Mr Foong had testified in the second leg of the trial. Like Ms Tiang, he was the church's external auditor.

After much grilling, Ms Tiang agreed with the defence.

The defence also made the point that Ms Tiang had known from as early as 2001 that church funds were used to produce singer Sun Ho's music album.

Ms Ho's husband and church founder Kong Hee, along with five deputies, is accused of misusing millions of church funds to boost her career.
