The pastor left Changi Prison a day ahead of his 55th birthday.

According to media reports, the pastor left Changi Prison a day ahead of his 55th birthday, about two years and four months after beginning his jail term.

His jail term was the longest meted to six City Harvest Church leaders for their involvement in the fund misappropriation. His sentence had been reduced from eight years’ jail upon appeal. The case was unprecedented as it was the largest case of misuse of charitable funds in Singapore to date. It was also unique as the millions were “replaced” through a series of sham investments and shady transactions, with the church ultimately suffering no financial loss.
