CHC Trial 20, November, 2015 Sentencing Day

http://www.citynews.sg/2015/11/city-harvest-trial-start-of-sentence-deferred-to-jan-2016/

And so, the leaders were convicted and sentenced.
I am still hoping they will appeal against the conviction and sentencing.
Anyway, my prayer is with them, their family and the church.

“For all the dreamers, our planet’s dream is not over yet.”
– Chrono Cross –

We lost the battle today.
But, it is not the last battle.
It is true that the current verdict is not favorable toward the leaders.
However, it is still not the end.
Remember the case of NUS professor who was involved in sex-for-grades case?
He was acquitted by the High Court.
I really think CHC leaders should appeal to High Court (assuming they have enough finance).
But for now, I guess they should really rest their mind and body.

Stay strong, CHC!

Somehow I have the impression one of the jobs of prosecution is to throw insults after insults at the accused.
These insults are then quoted by the mainstream media.
The readers then get the impression at the accused are “liars” as prosecution calls.
However, just because prosecution calls them “liars”, it does not mean the leaders are really “liars”.
In the end, I guess the leaders themselves are already immune with such characterization.
It is just not fair for the readers as they are led to believe these leaders are bad people.

Prosecution claimed the leaders misappropriated the building fund money.
In what way was it misappropriation when building fund was invested through bonds?

Victory and good news for the leaders are on the way.
21, October, 2015. The date of their vindication.
Stay tuned.

Prosecution claimed CHC was a victim of CBT.
Seriously, that’s a bizarre claim.
SC Sreenivasan pointed out before: none of the prosecution’s own witnesses even suspected church lost money.
In other words, is there a victim? None at all.
In fact, I absolutely am confident if any of  the church board members had been asked to testify, none would have claimed CHC was a victim.

CHC leaders are winning as the prosecution seriously have no direct evidence.
The best they do is simply to draw inference.
But really, how accurate is an inference?
Inference is like drawing a straight line between two points and insisting it must only be a straight line even though in reality these two points are part of a curve.

All the best, CHC leaders!

And so, the oral submission of the court case started.
According to a reliable source, the defense and prosecution interviewed the witnesses like an experiment.
Each came up with a hypothesis then conducted experiment based on the available evidences.
It is then a matter whether the judge has already made up his mind.

I have absolute confidence six of them will be acquitted fully!

Final battle of submission. I really think CHC leaders will win the case~~~

Sun took the stand and mentioned that Crossover was never a closed deal for her.
Indeed, it will be wonderful if such thing can happen.
Financial profit aside, it will be one big global mission.

Perhaps after this whole trial is over, we should that US album can somehow be launched?

According to prosecution, Wahju was just a conduit, dutifully following instruction from Serina.
Previously, Wahju himself refuted this.
In addition, SC Maniam showed another evidence that Wahju had control of the usage of the bonds which Serina did not know about.

And so, even until the last day of Serina’s stand, prosecution’s argument was still unconvincing.
Dear Judge, please acquit them, ok?~~~

http://www.citynews.sg/2015/05/city-harvest-trial-wee-arla-meant-ultimately-for-rental-interim-use-for-bond-redemption/

Indeed, a few years ago there was online noise when CHC purchased Suntec shares.
While online noise done by non-Christians was inevitable, I clearly remembered even Christians made online noise too.
Very unfortunate.
CHC had experienced more than enough online persecutions from non-Christians.
And yet, fellow Christians did exactly the same thing as those non-Christians.
If these Christians had doubts and questions, why could not they just keep it private and ask CHC directly?
Was there really a need for them to go online? Could they find the answer even if they went online?

A finishing line for Serina is coming~~~

http://www.citynews.sg/2015/05/city-harvest-trial-bonds-redeemed-to-solve-valuation-issue-not-to-avoid-scrutiny-says-serina-wee/

Prosecution, as stated in City News, claimed the following:

“The DPP further painted the picture that the entire series of bond redemption transactions, which involved Xtron, Firna, Ultimate Assets, AMAC and the church, was designed to “hide the trail of funds” and “obscure” the fact that it was really the church’s own money that had been used to repay itself.

While Serina disagreed with prosecution, I remember Chew Eng Han offered another view.
According to Eng Han, using money to repay itself is not unusual practice in financial world.
Hence, that substantially weakens prosecution’s argument on round tripping.

Yup, the leaders are doing just fine since the whole church prays for them~~
