CHC trial: How $28.6m was spent on Sun Ho's music career

SINGAPORE - She's the $10 million woman. 

That was the budget set aside to produce and market an English album in the US for City Harvest Church (CHC) founder Kong Hee's wife, Ho Yeow Sun.

Also known as Sun Ho, she was the face of the Crossover Project, a church mission that was started in 2002 to reach out to non-Christians through music.

But not every cent went into the music.

Nearly $700,000 was pencilled in as Kong's airfare, under the entry "increase in travelling expenses".

The document was among the evidence submitted to the courts.

Kong and five others are on trial for allegedly misusing more than $50 million of church funds - $24 million to fund Ms Ho's career and another $26.6 million to cover the tracks of the first amount.

The second leg of the trial started on Monday.

The prosecution is querying the movement of funds between CHC and different parties like Xtron, Ms Ho's former management company.
